Apply for Year 6 Summer School 


In secondary school, you will be taught by teachers who are subject specialists in their field.  This means that you will move classrooms between lessons and you will quickly learn your way around the school site. 

The school day lasts from 8:40am-3:10pm. You must be in school by 8:35am to make sure you arrive to your first lesson on time. The school day is divided into 6 x 50 minute lessons with a break in the morning, form time and a 50 minute lunchtime.  The timetable operates over two weeks and lessons are often doubles, which means that they last 100 minutes.  You will see your Form Tutor for 20 minutes every day.

 Central Essentials and Central Skills

Through these core lessons and our extra-curricular programme we enable students to develop the qualities that are known as the Central Essentials and the Central Skills.   

The Central Essentials are qualities that will help you to flourish as an individual and to respond to the challenges you will experience in life with strength and positivity: 



The Central Skills will help you develop effective learning habits and enable you to become a successful and empowered learner who can transfer these skills across all the subjects you study:  


 CFGS Uniform

School uniform gives a sense of belonging and pride in the school whilst ensuring equity amongst students. A smart appearance contributes positively to students’ attitude to work and study, and also significantly influences how the school is portrayed to the general public and our community. 


CFGS also runs a preloved uniform scheme and click here to find out more details. More Information on CFGS Uniform
