School Year

Group of student hikers

Our School Year is extended and reflecting the professional workplace, involves student choice as to when they take holidays and time away from their studies.

We understand how important it is for our students to have a school year which is aligned as closely as possible to other schools to ensure they have time with siblings, family, friends and out of school commitments, so we have kept a similar structure but with some key differences to offer our students exciting and extended opportunities.

‘Half term’ holidays - Students choose two from the three Half Term options for a week-long holiday during the year. One of the Half Term options will be selected by the student to take part in an Enrichment Week where students will participate in work placements, service learning, UK and overseas visits.

Term 4 - Term 4 is a three week term. Students can choose to attend term 4 Option 1 in July or Option 2 in August. In Term 4, students will have the option of local work placements, attend a Summer MBA course or overseas work placements, depending on their course of study and their choice.
