The School Day

The school day will comprise am and pm registration, plus six 50 minute lessons.

Depending on their prior attainment, students will receive one additional period in either English or mathematics.

Design technology will include food technology, textiles, resistant materials, graphic design, electronics and other DT areas will be covered, tailored to the needs and interests of the students.

Physical education will include both team sports, individual sports such as gymnastics, aerobics, yoga and pilates (as appropriate to student age) and creative sports such as dance.  There will be a clear mandate to promote healthy choices, body positivity and life-long habits for the girls at our school.

We envisage our intake will contain students with no or limited knowledge of English due to our proposed catchment area.  English as an additional language (EAL) support will be tailored to students’ needs with the aim of helping them successfully access the full curriculum as quickly as possible. These EAL lessons will replace the English lessons.

Ethics, beliefs and culture (EBC) will incorporate religious education and elements of SMSC (social, moral, spiritual and cultural), democracy, respect and tolerance.

There will be a 20 minute reading period each week.  This will include a mixture of students’ own choice of reading and news articles.  The sessions will include independent reading, pair and group reading and guided discussion of the reading material.
