Our timetabled day formally begins at 8.30am and ends at 3.30pm. This gives students more time in lessons than most other schools through our extended school day. More learning time means students’ chances of academic success and progress increase. 

Our Learning Family time allows students the pastoral support to develop as individuals and enhance their learning habits.
