Lesson timings and term/holiday dates

The school operates a sequence of five one hour lessons every day.

Students have an opportunity to meet with their form tutor at the start of each day where daily prayer and reflection takes place. The lunch time and after school clubs enable students to enrich the taught curriculum and participate in extra-curricular activities.
