School Day 

Revised School Day January 2021

Opening Times

The school buildings will be open to students from 8.15am each school day and students should go to the Main Hall for supervision until tutor time.

Students should not enter the buildings before this time as we cannot guarantee supervision before 8.15am.

Students staying after school beyond 3.10pm should be in a prearranged club or activity.

Buses leave the school site at 3.10pm for students with a Hampshire County school bus pass. 

There is also a late bus on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4.10pm that we ask students to sign up to if they use Hampshire bus services and wish to stay for a club on those days.

The school is a community site from 4.30pm and members of the public using facilities for private hire will be on site from that time.
