Gloucester Academy Parents & Students

School Hours & Term Dates

School Timetable

In September 2018, we introduced new timings to the academic day. Our rationale behind this change is as follows:

  • Have a consistent approach to learning every day.
  • All students have the same amount of teaching time — 25 hours per week (Year 7 to Year 11)
  • One lunch with improved supervision.
  • Activities can be put on for students at lunch time to engage.
  • Tutor/assembly time is now the first session to set the tone for the day across the school.

Term Dates 2018-19

Detailed below are the term dates for the 2018-19 school year. Please book family trips and holidays outside of school time. If you book a holiday during school time or need to register an absence for any other reason, please complete an absence request form. Please be aware that you may be issued with a penalty notice of £60 per child, per parent, for time off taken during school time.
