College Timetable Timetable in 2021 We’re changing up the timetable in 2021 to help deliver our school’s strategic plan of supporting staff with greater Professional Learning and Development (PLD) opportunities. To do this successfully, we need to create the space and capacity within our school day. Tuesdays will become a ‘Late Start PLD day’ for students and conversely an early start for staff. As a result, we have made some key changes to our timetable: Staff will begin the PLD programme at 8.10am, which will run until 9am. On Tuesdays, students will not be required at school until 9.05am, though school buses will run at the normal time. Tuesdays will still consist of five periods across the day, each 55 minutes in duration. We will no longer require a six-day rolling timetable (as we had in 2020) because we can simplify our structure to a five day timetable that replicates across each of the 40 weeks of school. While we value whole school assemblies for establishing community and school spirit and will continue to next year, we will hold assemblies twice per term instead of fortnightly. Even with the late start PLD, our students will now be in class for 50 more minutes per term than previously. There will be no changes to the format of the school day for the rest of the week.
