At John O’Gaunt School, we run a two week timetable - week A and week B.
This can be confusing for new students but there will always be someone around to help.
In September, we always start on week A.
The school day starts promptly at 8.45am. Each student must be at the door of their tutor room by 8.40am ready for the register to be taken by their form tutor.
