School Day

The school day is 9.15am-3.15pm.

Pupils can arrive between 9am and 9.15am. The total hours for the week are 30 hours.


We want to ensure that each pupil has the most positive learning environment to meet their educational and emotional needs. To achieve this, we have reduced the need for a pupil to move class because they are a particular age. Are departments are as below: –

  • Foundation Department
  • Middle Department
  • Senior Department
  • The Space: our specialist unit in the grounds of the school.

Over their time with us most pupils will move from Department to Department.  Many of our pupils cope well with this and even enjoy the moves. Some pupils find it difficult but are supported (by staff and transition activities) to cope and benefit from the changes, which we consider to be good preparation for coping with change in the outside world, and as preparation for the transition to post school settings and adult life.

For a small number of pupils moving to a new classroom and/or area of school is extremely traumatic and we may feel it is beneficial to reduce the number of class moves they have during their school life.
