Attendance is very important to us as we believe every minute counts at school. Attendance levels have been consisitently ahead of national averages. Last year (2018-2019) attendance was 97.2%.
We try hard to ensure that every minute counts during our school day. Registration is at 8.45am and the day ends at 3.45pm (Fridays 3pm).
