Curriculum Focus Days

During each year, on certain days, we collapse the regular timetable and re-direct all students and staff onto year-based activities. The principal aim is to allow opportunity for experiences and activities which don't necessarily fit into 1-hour lesson blocks - including study visits, projects, workshops, performances and mock exams for A-level students.

Curriculum Focus days are normal school days in terms of timings, uniform, punctuality and attendance. If a student is involved in an activity which takes them out of school, or is a longer day than normal, parents/carers will be contacted by the activity organisers.
