A Later Start
A 9:30 start allows students who travel from further afield, such as Telford, Rugby, Nuneaton and Solihull, to get to school on time without having to leave home unreasonably early. It also gives our students who live in the local area and travel by public transport an opportunity to miss the rush hour traffic, which often causes anxiety and may lead to school refusal.

 

An Earlier Finish
A 2:30 finish allows students who have to travel far to return home to miss the evening traffic as this may cause frustration and lead to school refusal. It also allows those students, who live in the local area and travel by public transport, to travel home at a quieter time of day.
A shorter day for our students is also important because the personalised curriculum means that the learning day is quite intense for students. Small groups encourage positive social interactions but still demand engagement at a more intense level than most mainstream schools.

 

The Length of Lessons
The length of lessons gives us an opportunity to structure the lessons in manageable chunks with short breaks between so that students have rest periods during the lessons.
