The Extended Day
Our extended day enables us to offer exciting opportunities for additional structured experiences and support. This is one of the many aspects of our approach that enables us together to go beyond what schools ordinarily do. Our commitment is to ensure that all pupils from Year 7 participate in a selection of enrichment courses from Day One. Courses ranging from languages, sports competition and exercise, enterprise initiatives, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Performing Arts, local and global community and partnership based projects, public speaking, school journeys and much more.
Lessons finish at 3.30pm each day and pupils then spend 15 minutes in form time with their form tutor. At 3.45pm pupils are free to leave or they can stay on at school and take advantage of our enrichment programme which runs until 5pm. Many pupils choose to stay on for homework club where additional support is provided to them.
