School Day

Our normal schedules have been altered due to the COVID-19 restrictions. You can now find below the updated start/finish times for school:

Government guidance requests that we stagger the start and end of the school day where possible, in order to ensure that not all students are entering the site together or using public transport at the same time.

School start and end times at Calderstones will therefore be different from what has historically been in place, albeit not dramatically so as has been reported in the cases of some other schools.

Year 7, 11 and 6th Form will start the school day at 8.40am (as is usually the case) and end at 2.40pm. Years 8, 9 and 10 will start the school day at 9.00am and end at 3.00pm. As such, the structure of the school day will be as follows:
