Term Times & Academic Day

We offer more periods of teaching time than mosts sixth forms and college in the area, with 6 periods per day giving our students direct access to their subjects. This also means that our Academic year is two weeks shorter than most schools, leaving more time for potential independent learning, revision on the run up to exams and enrichment as well as time to recharge from busy Sixth Form life.

Below you will find our academic day and term times for the academic year 2020/2021
