The College Day

To allow flexibility of subject choices the school day can start from 08.30 and run through to 17.55. However, core hours are 09.20 to 16.00 and students have to be in the College during these times. Throughout the day students are expected to remain in the College, and we monitor this through a regular registration system. When students do not have a lesson they are timetabled to be in one of our two supervised Study Halls. Here they can prepare homework assignments or do follow up reading. Although our Study Halls offer wifi access, internet use is restricted so as to avoid social media distraction. In the long term, this is training students to manage their workload and encourages them to plan and prepare their work, whether it is at GCSE or, eventually, degree level.
