The School Day

At St. Thomas More our school day begins at 8.45am and finishes at 3.15pm. The gates are unlocked at 8.30am to allow children to arrive earlier if they wish and to support the drop-off of siblings at feeder Middle and High schools. Gates are locked promptly at 8.45am and anyone arriving after this time will receive a ‘Late’ mark on the register. Parents MUST accompany children arriving late to the front office and provide a reason for the lateness. This will be monitored weekly by the Attendance team.

For the academic year 2023-24 the total number of compulsory hours for children to attend St. Thomas More is 32 hours and 30 minutes per week.
