Lunch Time Arrangements

The School’s caterers operate a cafeteria which gives a good choice of food at reasonable prices.  The canteen is open throughout lunch and breaktime.  Separate arrangements are made for those boys who prefer to bring packed lunches.  If a pupil forgets to bring in his packed lunch, he should check with the General Office to see if a parent has brought it in for him.  Unfortunately the school is unable to ‘deliver’ packed lunches to pupils.

If, for any reason, a boy needs to leave the premises at lunch time, a note must be sent by parents to the Form Tutor explaining the circumstances.

Routines - The School Day

Each school day includes 5 teaching periods, providing 5 hours tuition per day and 25 hours per week.  The timetable is delivered in a two week cycle.
