Although pupils follow their normal timetable during a lockdown, we have made adaptations to the school day to factor in screen time. This includes slightly shortened lessons to 50 minutes to allow for regular screen breaks.
Pupils are expected to attend inner-core lessons: English, Maths, Science, French, Latin, History, Geography, FPE, Greek/German/Spanish, Class Music and PSHE.
Recognising the demands of remote education, the attendance of the following outer-core lessons is ordinarily expected: Art, Design, Programming, Drama, ‘Options’ (Upper School). However, if parents feel their children are tired or need a screen break we are able to accommodate this.
PE lessons will not be taught, with pupils instead having live Games sessions after school. During timetabled PE lessons pupils are encouraged to take a screen break.
Pupils will continue to have Individual Music Lessons as normal.
Prep will continue to be set as normal for Upper School. Middle School will follow a reduced timetable and E Block will be set one English based prep per week.
