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.

The day is made up of five one-hour lessons, divided by a break from 10.55am–11.15am and by lunchtime from 1.10pm–2.50pm. Lunchtime is split into two halves. The first half is reserved for all students and staff to have their lunch in the Great Hall. The second half gives students the opportunity to take part in the many scheduled clubs on offer, travel to Failand for Games, or to move to their timetabled activity (Year 7, 8 and Sixth Form). 

The school day ends at 3.50pm but the Library remains open until 6.00pm for your child to complete homework or some individual study. There are also after-school clubs, music ensembles and sports practices which your child can choose to get involved with.
