The first day of the new school year is phased, so that different Year Groups arrive at and leave school at different times of the school day. It is a “pastoral day” in which students spend time with their Form Tutors (to receive important information and their new school planners) and there are also assemblies by the Headteacher.
The timings of the day are as follows:
- Year 7
- Years 8 & 9
- Years 10 & 11
- Year 12
- Year 13
- Arrive 9.30 am, depart 2.30 pm (including lunch)
- Arrive 11.10 am, depart 12.50 pm
- Arrive 1.40 pm, depart 3.25 pm
- Enrolment. Details here
- Arrive 1.50 pm
Year 7 students should go to the Assembly Hall on arrival.
A detailed schedule of Year 7 students’ first day can be viewed here.
