Sixth Form Day

Sixth Form begins at 8:50am and finishes at 3:05pm. Students are expected to arrive punctually for all lessons, allowing maximum teaching time.

The structure of the day is as follows:

8:50am - 9:05am - Registration and Form Time/Assembly

9:05am - 10:05am - Period 1

10:05am - 11:05am - Period 2

11:05am - 11:20am - Break

11:20am - 12:20pm - Period 3

12:20pm - 1:05pm - Lunch

1:05pm - 2:05pm - Period 4 (including afternoon registration)

2:05pm - 3:05pm - Period 5


Students will spend 15 minutes of each day with their form group. During this time the morning register will be taken and any announcements or letters will be given out. The remainder of the time is used for collective worship. Students will ordinarily attend an assembly at least once a week. This could be a year group assembly or a house assembly, additional assemblies may also be organised to present specific information.


Students will have a maximum of five one hour lessons each day. There are three in the morning and two in the afternoon. Each subject is timetabled for 9 lessons over a 2-week period. Once a week year 12 students will have an EPQ lesson with their form tutor. Year 13 will have a lesson to prepare for their futures – including completing UCAS applications, writing personal statements and establishing CV’s for employment.

Free Periods

It is likely that sixth form students will have free periods during their day, this time should be used in a purposeful way. The Sixth Form Centre offers computers and workspaces for students to use as well as a dedicated sixth form reference library.


Food is available to sixth form students at break time, either in the Dining Hall or in the Sixth Form Centre. Lunch time lasts for 45 minutes. We operate a cashless system and accounts need to be topped up in advance via our online payment system.

Students are welcome spend their lunch times off site and make the most of the local businesses surrounding the Sixth Form.
