Coronavirus update

Latymer Upper School is now closed until further notice. Students should refer to Google Classroom for their remote lessons at the beginning of the Summer Term; parents should check the Parent Portal/ Virtual School section for more information. For support for key workers' children, we are running the Latymer Hub at the School site. More details will be sent directly to those involved.

Term dates

Home > About us > Term dates

The school day at Latymer starts with dedicated tutor time at 8.25am – lessons begin at 8.55am.  A 75-minute lunch break gives pupils plenty of time for extra-curricular clubs and sports.  Co-curricular sports training, drama and music rehearsals run after the school day has finished at 4pm.

There are 35 teaching periods in the week, each of 45 minutes, but unlike many schools, our timetable is spread over two weeks. This system accommodates double periods of 90 minutes for some subjects, allowing pupils to really immerse themselves in their subjects.
