The Senior School Day

The Senior School Day

Here gives you a glimpse of the typical school day at BCS Senior School. We have designed the day to provide the widest opportunity for pupils to learn, take part in sport and activities and enjoy time with friends.

8.30am - Arrival. Pupils should arrive no later than 8.30am to ensure they are prepared for the day ahead.

8.40am - Form tutor time or assembly. Each pupil is allocated to a tutor, this is their first point of contact and they will see their tutor at least once a day.

Lessons – We have five one hour lessons a day operated on a two-week timetable – weeks A and B. While the two week timetables are similar, the style allows us to provide sufficient flexibility for a broad and balanced curriculum.

Co-curricular Programme - takes place mainly after school but also at lunchtimes and occasionally before school for some sports.
