The school day
At Bethany, the school day is divided into six lessons, each 50 minutes in duration, and an activities period at the end of each day. We do not have lessons on Saturdays but, for our boarding community, there is an extensive programme of trips and activities as well as the opportunity to relax and socialise with fellow pupils.
Day pupils may travel to Bethany using one of our many minibus routes.
There are uniform guidelines for Year 7 to Year 11 and also Sixth Form pupils. A second-hand uniform shop run by Friends of Bethany School is also available. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details. All profits are given to the School to help fund equipment, resources and opportunities for pupils.
