Hi, my daughter woke up panicking this morning wondering what the school hours are for AGGS. She will be on at me every day for the next 11 months until she starts if I don't find out. I looked on their website but couldn't find it there.

Can anyone help put me out of the misery I'm going to be enduring?

Many thanks. :D

The exciting bit is that they operate an 8 day timetable!

Yes the 8 day timetable takes a while to get your head around! No more "its Monday so it's pe". Thankfully they get given a really good diary which tracks all the days. You will be amazed at how organised she will become :)

Organised?! :shock: my DD? :shock: Surely that is impossible?

Thank you both for your very informative replies. She will have hours of fun playing Schools with her sister and sticking to the timetable. :D

When I was at school back in the dark ages we had the same lessons every Monday, the same every Tuesday etc.

At Alty Boys they run a 10 day timetable so they have a Week 1 and a Week 2 that is repeated over and over again.

At Alty Girls it is an 8 day timetable which basically means if you start with a Monday you have Mon as Day 1, Tues as Day 2, Wed as Day 3 etc etc through to the following Wed being Day 8. Then you start again with Day 1 on the Thursday and repeat.

It sounds weird and it is hard to keep straight in your head but the homework diary that the girls are given has it all set out with the date and the corresponding Day number and they seem to manage fine. It does avoid that "oh my goodness it's wednesday afternoon that means it must be double maths" feeling that I recall!

Yes, asking what day it is with a pupil from AGGS gets you a numbered answer, not the day of the week.
