Please be advised that:

Unless students are working with a member of staff, they must leave the school site by 3.30pm. If they remain on site they are doing so at their own risk. 

If students arrive on site before 8.25am, they will not be supervised unless they are attending a Sports Club or the Breakfast Club. The Drop In Breakfast Club is on Tuesday and Thursday, 7.30am - 8.20am.

The Main Hall Breakfast Canteen serves breakfast from 8am - 8.20am, this is not a supervised breakfast. 

* The Wavell School holds separate assemblies for each Year Group; the 2020-21 pattern is:

Monday -                                 Year   8
Tuesday -                                  Year   11

Thursday -                                 Year  7

Other special assemblies are also held as appropriate. We have Upper and Lower School Rewards Assemblies at the end of each Term when all students and staff gather to celebrate achievements and success.

*Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are currently unable to hold large group assemblies however we plan to hold virtual online assemblies until the regulations allow for our normal gatherings to resume.
