School Hours

Timings of the day from September 2020

We have made changes to the timing of the school day to support safe entrances and exits, to minimise movement around the school and to include staggered breaks and lunchtimes, in order to reduce the numbers of pupils in shared areas such as toilets and playgrounds.

The new timings of the day are as follows:

Years 7 and 8
