Morning school starts at 8.40 am with a short registration period which is followed by chapel, assembly or a form/tutor Group meeting. The final lesson ends at 4.15 pm although school may finish earlier than this on games and activity afternoons. The Library remains open for private study until 5.30 pm.
During the week, pupils in Years 7 and 8 have two games afternoons. Pupils in Year 9 and above have a games afternoon and an activities afternoon, when Combined Cadet Force, Community Service, Conservation, the International Leadership Programme, a range of interest-based activities and a variety of sports are offered.
There is a busy programme of sports fixtures against other schools on Saturdays, but no Saturday lessons.
