Academy Day

Due to Covid-19, the school day has now changed temporarily. Our school day starts when the gates open at 8.20am, for Year 10 and Year 11. Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9 should then arrive at 8.40am. We are doing these staggered starts to keep our year group bubbles separate. 

If your child is late they will automatically receive a lunchtime detention, these will be held within their year group area. 

We now have two 25 minute breaks, one mid-morning break at 10.40am, and then one at 12.45pm. This will enable each year group bubble the opportunity to collect their pre-ordered school lunch and eat their food throughout the day.

To try to minimise movement around the school, three timetabled periods per day - each 100 minutes in duration - have been scheduled.  From Tuesday through to Friday there is an additional period of one hour from 2.50pm to 3.50pm. 

Our formal school day finishes at 2.50pm on Mondays, and at 3.50pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.  

Detentions after school last up to 45 minutes. Families will receive a text if their child has an after-school detention.

School reception closes at 4.00pm on Mondays and 5.00pm on other days.

Please find below a table for the school week containing the location and entrance of each year group bubble, the academy timetable and the revised timings of our school day.
