The Day at Nexus

On the days that students from the Gifted Programmes spend entirely at Nexus, the day begins with an assembly based on British values and the important skills of resilience, enquiry and collaboration.


Science and Maths lessons for the Gifted STEM stream, and English and Science lessons for the Gifted PPE stream, which stretch the students well beyond the national curriculum, take place during the day.

Lunch is served in the Nexus Dining Room.

At 3pm, tea is served to students and staff in the Dining Room. Tea and toast with a variety of spreads are available. On Fridays we have chocolate spread as a special treat. Each week, on a rota basis, two Nexus students are responsible for clearing the Dining Room and wiping the tables.

On the days that students have been studying at the CSIA Main Campus, they will spend their co-curricular time on the Main Campus. They will be transported from the Main Campus to Nexus at 2.50pm for tea and co-curricular activities on a Monday, as that is the day we have our academic lectures.
