Years 7–11

The Senior School day starts at 8.30am, with breakfast available from 7.45am–8.20am every day in the Sixth Form Centre. Each day starts with either Form time or an assembly and provides an essential point of contact for students each day with their form tutor.

There are five lessons in a School day and each year-group will have Games at Failand one afternoon per week. Most days pupils will have three lessons in the morning and a further two lessons following lunch. On the day that a year-group is due to go to Failand, they will have a fourth lesson in the morning (Period 4). They will then travel to Failand by coach and have lunch in the Pavilion ahead of their afternoon Games lesson. There are some exceptions to this rule and pupils will receive a copy of their individual timetable at the beginning of the academic year. 

At the end of the day, pupils should collect their books and any equipment they need for homework and have left their form rooms by 4.15pm. After 4.30pm pupils who have not gone home must be in an organised activity, in the Library, or in J12. The Library is available for pupils wishing to undertake homework or quiet study. J12 provides a supervised space for those who do not wish to work after School. Both the Library and J12 are open until 6.00pm each day. If the School finishes early on the last day of term, both the Library and J12 will close at the same time.
