We have now moved from one hour lessons to fifty minute lessons.  As a result school will close at 2pm every Monday in order to operate a weekly training session for staff.

The 50 Minute Lesson

The 50 minute lesson allows us to operate with 6 lessons each day as opposed to 5. This means key
subjects will have a greater frequency of lessons and have the opportunity to see pupils every day. In
addition to this it will allow us to move away from a two week timetable and focus on a less
confusing one week timetable.

Monday Staff Training

We are all learners and it is essential that we ensure staff have the access to the highest quality
training both from expertise within the school and from outstanding practice from outside the
school. Looking at the structure below you can see that finishing at 2pm on Monday allows staff to
be involved in a robust Training Programme until 4.30pm. This program will ensure that the quality of
education delivered to all students remains as our top priority. It gives us, as a school, the time to
constantly evaluate teaching and learning and make the amendments which will be necessary as a
result of all the changes in education.

For those pupils who will find it difficult to leave at 2pm on Monday there will be a rich variety of
extra-curricular activities such as study support groups and sporting activities.
