Times of the School Day

Please find below the times of the school day.

Please note that the school gates open at 8:25am. If you need to drop your child off before this, you must drop them off at our Breakfast Club at Reception (which is a paid service).

Pupils, parents and carers can now enter the school site through whichever gate is most convenient to them. There is no one-way system in effect any more.
