The School Day
The school day commences at 8:50am when the bell rings, doors close 8:55am prompt. Pupils arriving after 8:55am must report to the school office. The school day finishes at 3:15pm.
On the last day of each term, school closes at 1:30pm.
The academic year or school year runs from 1st September to 31st August.
Our core holidays are set by Hertfordshire, however, the school has five INSET days and one Occasional day to allocate each year. Whenever possible the school has these days either at the beginning or at the end of a term so as to cause minimum disruption to pupils and families. We also consider the term dates set by other local schools, but, it is not possible to match all the local schools and we ask that parents with children with us and at a secondary school check both schools’ term dates before booking any holiday.
