The College timetable for the 2019/2020 academic year is detailed below.
The College day starts at 9.00am and goes on until 4.05pm. A level students will have three 90-minute lessons per subject per week (nine lessons for three A levels or 12 lessons for 4 A levels), while BTEC students will have nine 90-minute lessons per week. Time will also be allocated to coaching, study skills and enrichment.
There is a 15-minute break in the morning (at 10.30am on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays and at 11.00am on Wednesdays and Thursdays). The lunch break is 40-minutes long and is staggered for Year 12 and Year 13 to ensure the refectory is not over-crowded.
30-minute intervention slots have been added to the timetable on Wednesdays and Thursdays to allow teachers to provide one-to-one support for the students who need it. Students must make sure they are available at these times. They may also be asked to stay until 4.30pm on some days if further intervention is deemed necessary. Intervention exists to narrow the achievement gaps. We recognise that while some students have embraced the independent study model very effectively, there are others who would benefit from greater intervention. Support for all students from their teachers remains a priority and we believe this strategy will help all students to maximise their potential.
