More time

We extended the academy day to give students more classroom time to apply their skills and understanding deepening their learning.

Students must be in Morning Meeting by 8.30am every day.

The school day finishes at 3.30pm Monday - Wednesday and 2.35pm on Thursday and Friday.

Why did we change the school day?

  • To have a school day that provides the best educational opportunities for students.
  • To have a school day that ensures optimum student and staff well-being. This means finishing earlier at the end of the week than we did previously.
  • To enable students a better experience at break and lunch times, less rushed and calm.
  • To allow us to incorporate ‘Morning Meetings’ across the whole school - where students start each morning together as a year group focussing on knowledge acquisition through retrieval practice.
