The School Day

The structure of every learner’s school day is designed to maximise learning as well as to provide opportunities to develop social skills and support wellbeing. The school day begins at 9.30 am and concludes at 3.45 pm. There is a 15 minute morning break and 45 minutes for lunch. This allows for five hours of learning time on a daily basis, every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

Each Wednesday, students go home at 2.00pm to provide time for high-quality training and continuing professional development (CPD) to be delivered to all staff. This is a common and highly successful feature of other LAT secondary academies.
