Structure of the School Week

Our school day starts at 8:30 and finishes at 3:16 every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and 2:20 on Tuesday and Thursday. There is a 15 minute break and a 30 minute lunch. From Monday to Friday the students will attend a 12 minute well-being session every morning with their tutor and organise a whole school assembly every Friday morning.

Extra-curricular activities will take place every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday after school for approx one hour. These will commence in the third week of term. Activities will be decided initially by the students. Lunchtime clubs are ongoing and subject to change. Click here to view our current clubs.

Dress Code

There is no school uniform. Clean comfortable clothing that is conducive to learning is expected to be worn by all students. No offensive slogans allowed or clothing that is distracting for others to learn. Hoods are kept down in class and fake nails are not premitted for health and safety reasons.

Contacting the School

Office hours are 9am to 4:15pm. Please leave a message if you don’t get through and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. Parents/Guardians can contact teachers directly by email or make an appointment to meet with them through the office. If you are concerned about a student’s well-being please contact their tutor first and then contact the Principal or Deputy Principal .

Mobile Phone Policy

Phones are to be switched off and placed in the student’s locker (in their bag if they don’t have a locker) for the entire school day. No phones allowed at break or lunch. Students can use the office phone if they need to contact parents/guardians. We wish to keep the students fully focused on maximising their learning throughout the school day.
