School Day & Opening Times

Understanding the School Day

Our curriculum is based on traditional values and is delivered in such a way that it contributes to outstanding student learning experiences. As part of their curriculum, students have access to a variety of enrichment and support activities. These activities are delivered using an extended school day model. This model helps to ensure that no student falls behind.

The total school hours per week is 33 hours.
