A day in the life

Have you ever wondered what an average day at Harris Academy Clapham might look like?

The Academy gates open every morning at 7.45 and there will be a member of staff on duty to welcome you.

At 8am the canteen will start serving breakfast and the library will open, if you want to pick up a new book to read or do some reading before the day starts. You can also use this time to play outside if you want to.

At 8.25 the first bell will go and we will all line up in our tutor groups. By the time the next bell goes at 8.30 we are all already lined up in silence and paying attention to the instructions or messages.

If it is a Monday, you will go straight to the main hall for our weekly assembly. All the other days you will go with your tutor to your tutor room to do the tutor activities for that day. This could include reading, discussing a world event or the key topic of the week.

At 8.50 you will move to your first lesson of the day. All of your lessons last 50 minutes but sometimes (for example in PE and DT) you will have double lessons.

You will have two lessons before break at 10.30. Break lasts 20 minutes and you can use this time to catch up with your friends, get something to eat, visit the library or play outside. Before school, break and lunch you are only allowed in the library, the canteen or outside. Eating is only allowed in the canteen and outside. You are very welcome to bring your own packed lunch to eat at break or lunchtime. Remember that we do not want to see you munching on big bags of crisp, sweets or cookies. They really are not good for your body or your brain. And we definitely do not want to see you drinking any energy drinks! Our academy will also be entirely nut free, so plan your packed lunch carefully!

After break you have another two lessons before we have lunch at 12.30. Lunch lasts for 40 minutes and, as with break, you can get something to eat, visit the library or play outside.

After lunch you have another two lessons before the end of the academy day at 2.50 before enrichment starts!
