Change to Lunch Hour During Exams

As we have done in previous years, we will be moving our lunch break one hour earlier for the examination period. This means that it will run from 12.30pm - 1pm, starting Friday 3rd May.  Period 4 will commence at 1pm with period 5 to follow immediately after.  We will revert to our normal timings on Tuesday 18th June. 

The change allows a 2-hour period for afternoon exams and ensures that students’ concentration isn’t disrupted by the sound of other year groups on their lunch break. 

For your guidance, the examination dates are:
Year 10 Internal exams: 3rd May - 10th May
Year 11/GCSE, Year 13/A Level: begin 13th May
Years 7 to 9 and Year 12 Internal exams: 10th to 14th June. Further details will follow. 

The new timings of the day will follow the below structure:

Registration 08:40
Period 1 09:00
Period 2 10:00
Break 11:00
Period 3 11:30
Lunch 12:30
Period 4 13:00
Period 5 14:00
