Break has been allocated 20 minutes as students have toast and breakfast at this time.

Lunch lasts for 40 mins and students are expected to sit with staff and other students for the first 20 mins (this whether they wish to eat or not) as it is an opportunity to chat and interact with other students and staff informally and is an important element of socialisation.

After lunch students may engage with a range of activities inside or go out with a football as long as they are accompanied by a member of staff.
