School Day

A two week timetable operates at The Grove School.  Weeks are labelled ‘Week A’ and ‘Week B’ – click here.
Timings of the School Day

At The Grove we are proud of our tutor programme and the support it offers students. Tutor time is used to deliver a number of educational programmes; to discuss key issues around health and emotional wellbeing; to monitor progress and attendance; to recognise and acknowledge hard work and effort; and to ensure all students are prepared for the day ahead. In recognition of this, we have recently moved  Tutor time to the start of the day. The school day will remain the same, starting at 8:40am and finishing at 3:00pm.

Students are to arrive no later than 08:35am ready to attend Tutor Time at 08:40
