    Re: Starting and finishing time of school.

    Children were coming out of school after the school day was over.
    He reached school late, after school had started.

    I don't really like the repetition of "school" in either of those though. I'd be a bit more imaginative:

    At the end of the school day, children poured out through the doors/gates.
    He arrived after school had started. He was very late!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
