You may be aware that Poltair School will be operating a slightly different school day from September. Essentially we will be moving from a three period day to a four period day, in order to try and improve the learning experience for all students. The start and finish times of the school day will remain unchanged. In addition, there is no change to the length of the break times, although there are small adjustments to the timings of these to accommodate the changes to the lesson lengths.

The new timings are as follows:

08.35Tutor time
09.00Lesson 1
10.15Break 1
10.40Lesson 2
11.55Lesson 3
13.10Break 2
13.45Lesson 4
15.00End of main school day / Poltair +

If you would like to discuss the changes in any greater detail please do not hesitate to contact the school.
