The typical day at NSETC

Students complete a full working week. Course matter is personalised for each student and could include directed study, independent study, enrichment programmes, work placements, community projects, voluntary work, visits, and live project briefs.

Working week

Monday and Friday - 08:30 - 16:00

Tuesday to Thursday - 08:30 - 17:00

Tutor groups

Students meet every morning for registration with their tutor, with an extended period for personal, social, health and citizenship education.


You will continue to have homework, but there will be opportunities to complete some of this within the longer school day with the support of our teachers.


During the week students have subject lessons as well as sessions where they can take part in STEM and business enrichment activities, sometimes these will be led by our university and industry partners. There will also be times during the year when students will be out of school for visits in industrial placements, or experience university laboratories, for example.
