“Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.”
— Albert Einstein

To allow for a vast array of learning opportunities, the school operates on a 10-day timetable cycle with six 55-minute periods each day.

The timetable allows for a 55-minute chapel service or assembly held at St George's Cathedral every Monday afternoon, and a 55-minute Extended Pastoral Care Group session on Wednesdays to allow students to do activities in their homeroom or go into the city as a small group. 

Physical Education classes are always held over two periods to allow for travel.

Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays have five academic periods per day and Tuesdays and Thursdays have six academic periods per day.

On Fridays, our students finish a little earlier, with lessons concluding at the end of Period 5.
