Period 0 & Period 7


Period 7 is a Year 11 intervention offered by the majority of GCSE subjects across the academy. Personalised timetables are issued to all Year 11 students based on regular assessment data, ensuring that they are challenged and supported in reaching their full potential. Students are expected to attend all Period 7 classes.

Period 7 runs from 14.45 - 15.45.

During the exams season, the academy also implements Periods 0 and Period 8. These are both optional interventions but are targeted specifically at students who would benefit from further study and guidance.

Period 0 runs from 07.30 - 08.30. Period 8 runs from 15.45 - 16.45.
