Length of day

The academic year starts in September and is divided into three terms. In order to attain the high standards and achievements expected at Wapping High School, the students have an extended school day (Monday to Thursday) allowing 32 hours of learning per week and 1152 hours of learning per school year.

By extending the school day, students who remain at Wapping High for the full 5 years will receive the equivalent of an additional year’s worth of education, whilst also having better learning skills and deeper engagement with their learning ensuring better outcomes.

The daily structure is designed to facilitate each child’s Personalised Learning Pathway.

Flexibility in timetabling enables learning to take place in a wider variety of structures and settings. The timetable will incorporate trips and other specific activities.

Occasionally, an enrichment activity will last for longer than one hour. Participation in these longer activities will be voluntary
