The School Day


Our school operates a timetable of 25 one-hour lessons per week and students are issued with individual timetables in September.  You will receive notification of the first day’s lessons by email before the start of term.   

A feature of our timetable is the Enrichment Days which take place regularly throughout the year.  On these days the normal timetable is collapsed and activities such as school trips, cross-curricular projects and activities and house enrichment take place. 

The image below shows a typical year 7 timetable.


Days run down the side of the timetable covering both week 1 and week 2.  The first week in September is always week 1, after this the weeks alternate between week 1 and week 2.  

Lessons run across the top of the timetable: periods are numbered 1-5 and morning and afternoon registration are also shown.   

Each block contains a 2 letter code for the subject, a room number to help you find your classroom and a 3 letter code indicating your teacher for this lesson.
