The School Day
The Abbey school operates a 2 week (48 periods) timetable which alternates between Week A and Week B according to a pre-published schedule.
The school day begins at 8.50 with a 30 minute registration period with form tutors. Within this slot there is time allocated to support students with literacy, numeracy, thinking skills and academic mentoring. There are also regular year group and house assemblies that take place for each student dependent on their year group.
On Thursdays Period, 4 is lengthened by 10 minutes and the school day ends at 2.30 for students. However, Year 11 students will have support and revision sessions in this time at specific points in the school calendar. The remainder of the afternoon on a Thursday until 4.50 is used for staff CPD and INSET.
Activities are available for those students who have to remain in school until 3.20 on Thursdays.
