College Day/Timetables

Timings of a typical school day

Our days always start at 8.40am and end at 3.00pm.  Lessons are 60 minutes long, except for Tuesdays (see below).
A breakfast service is available for students from 8.00am to 8.30am.

Registration 8.40 am 9.00 am
Period 1 9.00 am 10.00 am
Period 2 10.00 am 11.00 am
Break 11.00 am 11.20 am
Period 3 11.20 am 12.20 pm
Period 4 12.20 pm 1.20 pm
Lunchtime 1.20 pm 1.55 pm
Period 5 2.00 pm 3.00 pm

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Tuesdays, registration is extended until 9.10am (to enable Year 11 assemblies with guests including local colleges). P1 then ends at 10.05am. This means that once a week, P1 and P2 are 55-minute lessons rather than 60 minutes. 

In light of the government’s expectation that all schools offer a minimum of 32.5 hours a week, we will be updating the timetable of the college day for September 2022 by the end of this summer term. We intend to either start 10 minutes earlier or finish 10 minutes later.

Changes to the school day under COVID measures:

In the event of us needing to use year-group bubbles, to keep year groups separated at lunchtime, students will still go to lunch at the same time but their last 10 minutes will be back in their lesson P4. There they can finish their food and have additional time to relax but safely in their lesson supervised by their teacher. The table below may explain this more clearly:

Year Lunchtime Additional lunchtime in classrooms
7 12.20 -1 2.40pm 12.40 - 12.50
8 12.40 - 1.00pm 1.00 - 1.10pm
9 1.00 - 1.20pm 1.20 - 1.30pm
10 1.20 - 1.40pm 1.40 - 1.50pm
