The School Day

The school day starts at 8:55am and finishes at 3:00pm.

The lunch break is from 1:00pm – 1:45pm.


All students stay to lunch - they may bring sandwiches by arrangement. Having decided to eat school meals or sandwiches, they are not expected to change their minds unless their circumstances change. Money for meals should be paid at the beginning of each week where possible. Students are expected to stay on the school premises during lunchtime.


Parents who think that their circumstances warrant the provision of free school meals should ask for the relevant details from the School Office. Students who receive free school meals are not differentiated in any way from those who pay.


The school provides transport either by minibus or taxi. Further details are available from the school office.
