School Day

Heathcote School 67Our School Day begins at 8.40am and finishes at 3.00pm. We run a one-week timetable consisting of 6 x 50 minute lessons per day, although a number of these are double lessons. The day begins with a 20-minute tutor period in mixed tutor groups, which develops key learning skills. Pupils will attend a whole school assembly reflecting on an aspect of Social, Moral, Spiritual or Cultural (SMSC) understanding once a week.



The main school building is on 3 levels. Room numbers indicate which level the room is located on via the first digit of its number. For example, Room H123 is on the first floor and Room H216 is on the second floor. Where a two-digit number is given, for example H60, the room is on the ground floor.

The Sixth Form block is on two levels. The ground floor room numbers have three digits, all beginning with a 6, so for example Room H608 is a ground-floor room. The upper floor room numbers have four digits all beginning with 61, so for example Room 6114 is an upper floor room.

The Humanities Building is also on two levels. The ground floor room numbers have three digits, all beginning with a 7, so for example Room 712 is a ground-floor room. The upper floor room numbers have four digits all beginning with 71, so for example Room 7101 is an upper floor room in the Humanities Building.
