A Typical Day at Orange Tree

Every day at Orange Tree is different and each student may have an individualised version of the timetable – including a reduced number of lessons – to reflect and accommodate their needs. Below is what a typical day might look like:

9:05 AM


Pupils arrive at the school for registration. This creates a calm and positive start to the day, with pupils and their Key Teachers able to catch up and talk about the day, and week, ahead. Students also have the opportunity here to have a snack or slice of toast so they are ready for their lessons.

9:20 AM

Lessons begin

Our first lesson of the day begins. Each lesson lasts for 50 minutes, with pupils having five lessons a day.

11:00 AM

Short Break before another Lesson

A short break at the end of the first two lessons to give students time to re-focus and prepare for the next lesson. Lessons resume at 11:20.

11:20 AM

Two more lessons

Students have two more lessons before lunch

13:00 PM


Lunchtime is a central part of the day and a key foundation of our school community. Students have a chance to socialise and get to know one another. There is also time to take part in lunchtime activities with a variety of options available. Lessons resume at 14:00.

15:00 PM

End of the Day

Following two more lessons, school ends and pupils are free to go home.
