At Priors Field we have six 55 minute lessons. Lessons start at 8.50 am and finish at 4.10pm so we have quite long days compared to what you're used to. The breaks here are from 10.45am to 11.15am and lunch is from 1pm - 2.15pm for first years and 1.10pm - 2.15pm for everyone else!
In between break and lunch times you can go to the library. There aren't only books to borrow and Kindles to use, but DVDs as well! At the tuck shop you can buy drinks and sweets at break time and after school. We also have a separate stationery shop which is open at lunchtime.
There are three different Science subjects: Chemistry, Physics and Biology. The lessons here will probably be much more varied than the lessons at your previous school. We don't just do writing all the time, we play games, use computers and work in pairs or with partners and groups. Every single subject runs an extra workshop session either during lunchtime or after school, so if there is something you didn't get in class, or just something you want to find out more about - you can go along to those and get some help.
Go to each lesson with enthusiasm (especially English!) - it will make a difference to how you learn.
