New Academic Year and School Day 2022/23
Arrangements for the new term are as follows:
Tuesday 6th September:
- The autumn term begins for our new Year 7 (blue ties) at 8:25am with an assembly in B:Hall followed by tutor group activities all day.
- Year 12 students are also required to attend on the morning of Tuesday 6th for their induction into Post-16. For students who have studied their GCSEs at IGS, induction will start at 10:15am. The full programme will be confirmed with students on GCSE results day
- Year 13 students taking resits have all been informed of their individual resit timetable which runs from the afternoon of Tuesday 6th September to Friday 9th September.
Wednesday 7th September:
- All year groups will start school at 8:25 am on Wednesday 7th September with an extended form period and assemblies until the end of period 3.
Please note, that from September students will be expected to be in their form rooms by 8:25am for the start of registration, rather than just being on the school site. This will mean tutor time will now be 15 minutes, enabling meaningful activities (e.g., mental health support, a learner curriculum, a reading programme in Years 7 and 8 and assemblies) rather than just a quick check-in, and an opportunity to foster stronger links with the tutor.
The school day will continue to finish at 3pm, except on a Wednesday which will be 2.35pm.
