School day and equipment

The School day at West Exe School starts at 8:35 in the morning and finishes at 3.05/4.05, depending on after-school clubs or KS4 period 6 lessons. The structure of the School day has been designed to ensure that 5, 1 hour lessons form the core of learning activities, with after-school, break-time and before-school activities offered to students.

The bag must be of a suitable size to hold their West Exe Knowledge Organiser, School folder (34.5cm x 24.5cm), planner, pencil case (33.5cm x 12.5cm), equipment and books.
