The School day starts at 8.45 am.  All sessions are 1 hour or multiples of 1 hour.  We run a continuous day with flexible lunch arrangements. The main teaching sessions end at 1.15pm on Friday. On other days they may end at different times depending on the year group.

Our school year is organised into five terms of eight weeks, with a two week holiday between terms (four/five weeks in the summer).
