Each day starts for our students at 9am with form time or assembly. 

In form time students practise and develop their literacy and numeracy skills, learn about current affairs and discuss important topics, reflect on their week and set themselves targets, and discuss ideas to be put forward to the student council. Tutors get to know their students well as individuals so they can provide excellent pastoral support and care.

Reading is an important part of each day at Jane Austen College. Each morning there is time for reading for pleasure, or personalised reading and literacy support.

After this, students engage in a wide academic curriculum, attending five hour-long lessons and benefitting from the best teaching.

Breaks in the morning, afternoon, and for lunch ensure that students have time to relax and socialise too. Lunch is an important part of the day, with all students staying on site to enjoy their meal.

Throughout the day we instil in all our students the importance of good manners, courtesy, and respect, and help them to develop important social skills.

  • Parents and Carers can select what they would like their child to do after 3.30pm Mondays to Thursdays - either to go home and complete work there, or choose from one of our many electives, or complete homework in Silent Prep. 

  • On Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays there is also the option to remain in school and complete homework in Additional Prep sessions.

  • Catch up Prep on Fridays is only for those students who have not handed in one or more pieces of homework during the week.

Electives

Our electives are high-quality clubs and activities which students can choose from. Participation in electives is a compulsory part of our day. Electives take place during the school day on Mondays for Year 7 and 8s and on Tuesdays for all year groups.
