  • Students must arrive promptly for registration time and all lessons.
  • Students need to be in their designated Tutor Room by the first registration bell at 8.40am ready for registration.

Punctuality is an essential life skill which transfers into adulthood. We expect our students to be in school on time, every day.

The first bell rings at 08.40am. It is expected that all pupils are inside the school gates before 08:40am. Arriving late results in lost learning.


The school car park is for staff and visitors. Unfortunately we are unable to facilitate general parking. When picking up or dropping off students please park sensibly in the areas around school and with consideration for our neighbours, residents and other road users.

May we remind you that in the interests of safety, parking on the yellow lines on Middlewich Road is dangerous and can obstruct pedestrians and impair their vision when crossing the road.

We encourage, where possible, pupils to walk to and from school.
