School timings

The start and end timings of the College day is staggered for drop-off to assist traffic flow. The structure of our school day is divided into 20-minute periods for timetable purposes as it is the most flexible format to ensure compliance with KHDA requirements. Pupils are provided with their timetable of lessons when they join the college, but the overall structure of the school day is as follows:

Co-curricular activities are offered before-school from 6:30am-7:30am.

Pupils not attending a morning CCA may come onsite from 07:00am with staff supervision. Registration starts from 7:30am-8:00am depending on age-group, and lasts for 30 minutes.

For Prep and Senior pupils, the end of the school day is 15:20pm, with after-school co-curricular activities offered up until 16:20pm.

Early Years pupils finish at 14:20pm throughout the week, with a sibling club offered for those that will be picked up at the later time of 15:20pm. 

On Friday the school finishes at 12:00pm.
