The school day starts at 9am. There are staff on duty from 8.30am, so we expect students to arrive between 8.30am and 9am. Students spend 9am-9.15am in their tutor group. The school day finishes at 3.35pm every day except Friday, when we finish at 2.30pm. Students spend 3.15-3.35pm in their tutor group (1.15-2.30pm on a Friday). Students have a 15 minute break every day, from 10.15-10.30am and lunch is 12.30-1.15pm. Lunch is divided into two sittings, students either eat their lunch from 12.30-12.55pm and engage in a supervised structured activity from 12.55pm until 1.15pm or engage in an activity 12.30-12.55pm and eat their lunch 12.55-1.15pm. We have one assembly a week on a Friday at 2pm. It can take up to 25 minutes for all students to have left the school site in their taxis. There is a bell that indicates the start of the school day at 9am, the end of break and the end of lunch.
