The School Day
At Kingdown School, we have five 60 minute lessons and one 20 minute tutor period each day.
The day starts at 8.30am with the first bell when students make their way to their first lesson.
In total, students will be in school for 6 hours 20 mins each day (8.30am to 2.50pm) which totals 31 hours and 40 mins each week (not including after school activities).
From September 2023, the school day will start at 8.25am and finish at 2.55pm. Lesson 1 will begin 5 mins earlier and there will be an additional 5 mins to the lunch time break. In total, students will be in school for 6 hours 30 mins each day (8.25am to 2.55pm) which totals 32 hours and 30 mins each week (not including after school activities).

Two Week Timetable
By operating a two week timetable (Week 1 and Week 2), Kingdown School is able to provide flexibility for a broad and balanced curriculum.
It also allows us to focus an appropriate amount of time on the core subject areas.
After School Activities
On Monday, teachers are in meetings after school so there are no late buses and only limited after school activities on offer.
However, on Tuesday through to Thursday, we offer a wide range of after school activities (sporting and non-sporting) and late buses are also available.
