Bell Times

Auckland Grammar School operates a 7-period day timetable for all days except Tuesday. This is a 9am start and 3:15pm finish for all students. On Tuesdays, Form 5 students will have an 8-period day, concluding at 3:30pm and all other year levels will have a 7-period day, finishing at 2:50pm. This change allows Form 5 students to study six different subjects.


Auckland Grammar School has a daily full School assembly in the Great Hall, beginning at 9am. The assembly sets the tone for the day and is where the School community acknowledges the outstanding academic, sporting and cultural achievements of the students.

It should be the aim of each student to cross stage at least once during their time at Grammar. Important notices are delivered to the School community at assembly; these include messages about meetings for sports and cultural teams, room changes and any other information affecting the student body. It is also when the first attendance roll of the day is taken.
