Frequently Asked Questions

Form Rooms will be the normal teaching room (or as close to it as we could get) of your Form Tutor. That means that your form room could be in any area of the school. Year groups will no longer have all their form rooms in the same area therefore you are highly likely to have neighbours from different year groups.

You can find out your form room in two different ways. For those of you who have access to Show My Homework your new timetable will appear approximately two weeks before the first day back. This will have your Form Room on it.

Alternatively, an email will be sent to your school email advising you of your Form Room over the summer holidays.

New Year 7s and Year 12s will receive a paper copy of their timetable on the first day of term.

Will students be able to use mobile phones and /or iPads in school?
We have updated our procedures around mobile phone use for students. From September students in years 7-13 will be permitted to use their mobile phones during social time in designated areas. May continue to be used in lessons under the direction of the teacher for educational activities only.

The end of the school day will be 3:30pm for all year groups.

No doubt the way in which they are used will evolve over time, however, we anticipate that they will continue to be used in the same way they have this year. That is to say Show My Homework will be used to set all homework, recording reward points etc and MsTeams will be used for.
