Staff and students eat lunch together at Heath School Camden

The School Day

Our school day is 9-3pm on Monday to Thursday, 9–2pm on Fridays.

This adds up to 29 hours each week.

9am – School begins.

All students come to the student entrance. Each student hands in their phone at reception: it's kept safe for you all day so you can learn without any distractions.

9.00-9.30 Breakfast & Tutor Time

Start the day with breakfast with your tutor group. Tutor time is used to reflect on the previous day and set targets for the day ahead.

9.30-9.40 Reading

9.40-1.20 Morning Lessons (Periods 1 to 4)

4 days each week, mornings are taken up with 4 lesson periods. Each day these will be Maths, English, Food and 1 subject from a wide range that includes PSHE, Performing arts, PE and more.

  •  9.40 to 10.30 Lesson 1
  • 10.30 to 11.20 Lesson 2
  • 11.20 to 11.40 Break 
  • 11.40 to 12.30 Lesson 3
  • 12.30 to 1.20 Lesson 4

1.20-2pm Lunchtime

All students eat lunch together, staying in our Canteen for the first 10 minutes before they can choose to go outside and take part in activities like table tennis. This helps make sure everyone eats a nutritious meal and joins in the family environment of school.

2-3pm Monday to Thursday, Vocational Learning (Friday finish is 2pm)

4 afternoons each week are spent on vocational learning. A real world expert visits school to deliver hands-on lessons from a fantastic range that includes boxing, podcasting, construction, hair & beauty, and martial arts.


Active Learning Days

One day each week is for active learning off site and usually features a trip out of school. Recent Active Learning trips have been to the Thames & Tower Bridge, rock climbing, ice skating, escape rooms, virtual reality, and bowling. It's a great way to develop students’ social skills and independence as well as earning them an accreditation from the Prince’s Trust – and of course it's a highlight of the week for our students!

”I really enjoy the active learning activities, specially Thorpe Park and go-karting!”
