Daily life at Princethorpe is immensely rich and varied, as well as a stimulating and well resourced curriculum, one glance at our termly calendar shows the wealth of activities on offer during the school day, at lunchtime and after school.
Pupils are spoilt for choice with a wide range of extra-curricular interests catered for, from team sports and music and the arts, to Duke of Edinburgh, debating and charitable activities.
The school is open from 7.30am each school day, with breakfast available in the Sixth Form Centre for early birds - pupils, staff and parents. Free Wi-Fi access, daily newspapers and breakfast TV make for a civilised start to the day.
There are six, 50-minute periods every day and all pupils have one afternoon of games a week. Extended day continues after school until 6.00pm for those doing supervised study or taking part in sporting and extra-curricular activities.
