The Focus school day is a living experience that students, teachers and parents enter into, share and enjoy to form a vibrant learning partnership.
At each of the strategically located Focus schools, each day begins long before the students arrive. Careful planning and organisation is required not only to ensure each student arrives on time and ready for learning, but that the school is also ready to receive them. To us, things such as the uniform a child wears, the transport they use and the breakfast they have are all important things in making a day go well.
The Focus curriculum and timetable provide a common platform on which the school day is based, giving scope for campuses to work together and share resources. In the secondary schools, we currently operate three periods of 100 minutes (1 hour 40 minutes)/six periods of 50 minutes per day, over a two-week timetable, to facilitate a broad and appropriately allocated timetable across a wide range of subjects.
