School Day

It is proposed that school day will begin with breakfast club starting at 8.00am, followed by registration in tutor groups and a morning act of collective worship at 8.45am. Collective worship* will be led by a member of school staff, the school chaplain, a member of the school Governing Body or a representative of the Cathedral.

Formal learning starts at 9.00am and the core day ends at 3.30pm to be succeeded by a range of school enrichment options operating through to 5.00pm to widen the school curriculum and provide additional opportunities for skills acquisition in areas beyond the formal taught curriculum. Enrichment also offers personal development opportunities.

Activities will include a supervised homework club, performing arts productions, a debating society, sports and games including competitive matches, computer/internet clubs including programming and other technological activities, enterprise opportunities and Duke of Edinburgh Awards. These clubs, societies and sporting activities will form a varied programme staffed by teachers, parents, volunteers and paid experts, linked to the curriculum offered during the formal taught day to reinforce and supplement student enjoyment of learning and student progress.

* Fully planned and appropriately staffed alternative provision will be available for those students who are opted out of any or all faith-based activities including collective worship.
