The Academy Day
The Academy day seeks to make full use of the time available for learning. Learning sessions are divided into 55-minute periods with some lessons lasting up to 110 minutes. These longer sessions encourage deeper learning and engagement. A later start for L3 recognises the unique nature of adolescent development and provides these young adults with the time to prepare for learning.
The standard Academy day includes 25 minutes of House time when pastoral groups come together to meet with their form tutor and take part in assemblies and the pastoral curriculum.
Our extended day offers all students with the opportunity to arrive at the Academy from 8am to be part of breakfast clubs and includes the allocation of time between 3:35 and 4:30 (for lower school) and 4:30-5:30 (for upper school) to take part in the Self-Directed Learning (SDL) programme.
