Our school day starts at 8.15am and ends at 4.45pm Monday to Thursday and 2.45pm on Fridays.
Our timetable is changing for 2018/19 academic year. Please click the link to see the new timings of the school day.
Our curriculum covers all national curriculum subjects and delivers a broad and balanced experience for students. Options are chosen in year 8 so that all GCSE option courses begin in year 9.
The curriculum in each year group supports the delivery of social, moral, spiritual and cultural education (SMSC) as well as the promotion of British values.
Every Monday to Thursday, the longer day is used to support our compulsory study support and extra-curricular sessions. All students in years 7 & 8 have one reading lesson per week during which they follow the Accelerated Reader Scheme. For some students this will continue into year 9.
Please see each section in the table on the left for more details about the curriculum delivered to each year group and click 'our school curriculum' to see the whole overview.
