Changes to the structure of the Academic Day from September 2019.
Changes to lesson lengths - From September 2019
Students currently attend up to six lessons of 50 minutes in length in a single day with substantial movement between lessons throughout the day. From September 2019, the Academy will be moving to four lessons of 80 minutes in length as our broad unit of teaching. There will be three extended lessons of 120 minutes each week (Tuesday-Thursday) for Years 9-11 to ensure current teaching contact time is maintained.
Changes to the timings of the Academy Day (Monday-Thursday)
As consequence of our new curriculum structure, we have made slight amendments to the timings of the Academy day in order to accommodate our new length of lessons. Students are still expected on site at 8:25am with tutor time starting at 8:30am. Year 7 and 8 students will now finish at 3:10pm Monday to Thursday with Year 9-11 students continuing to finish at 3:50pm on Tuesday to Thursday.
Earlier Finish on Friday
The Academy day will now finish at 2pm on Fridays for Years 7 – 10 and 3pm for Year 11 students. This will allow for dynamic, bespoke and focussed intervention for Year 11 throughout their GCSE year.
