About our day
The day begins at 8.35am. Pupils sign in and register in their year groups, prepare for the day ahead, check their schedules and ensure they have everything they need.
Morning sessions run from 9.00 to 12-12.30 and afternoon sessions run from 12.30-1 until 2.45. These may be timetabled lessons, working in the café and retail area, gardening in the community, or an off-site visit to an another provision, such as The Gateway Vocational Centre. At the end of the day the students are responsible for cleaning the centre, promoting life and work skills and teaching them to work in teams and to take responsibility fro their community . The day ends at 3.10pm
All breaks, morning and lunch are staggered so students have the opportunity to socialise in small groups. We encourage pupils to make use of their common room during this time. They may bring their own packed lunch, have a hot dinner or purchase lunch from the Café at a discounted price. Those students eligible for free school meals can order a lunch from the Café.
