Academy Day

Our school is open from 07:30am, when breakfast is available at the restaurant for all students. We encourage students to eat a healthy breakfast either at home or at school.

The school day starts at 08.30am, and all students must arrive on site by 8.25am. Students who arrive after this time receive a detention, with further sanctions for those who are late regularly.

There are six lessons daily, each lasting 50 minutes. Before the start of the day’s lessons, all students in Years 7 to 13 attend registration time with their tutor group. This is a very valuable time, as it allows them to catch up with their tutor and peers, to discuss any successes or challenges they have faced, and to prepare for the day ahead.

There is a morning break from 10:15am -10:35am. There is also a break for lunch from 12:45pm -1:25pm, during which our excellent on-site restaurant serves freshly-prepared hot meals, drinks and snacks. Students can eat in the dining hall or under the covered shelter in the quad.

All food at Future Academies Watford, however, must be eaten in these designated areas, and not during lesson times. If students wish, they may bring a packed lunch to school. Please see the Academy Meals section for more details.

The school day ends at 3:05pm, although there are additional enrichment activities from 3.15pm – 4.15pm which we encourage students to participate in. Please see the Education Enrichment section for more details.
