Reminder – Equipped for Learning/Uniform

Pupils can only make good progress and enjoy school if they have the correct equipment to use in lessons and for homelearning. Please can you ensure your son is fully equipped for school and check they have everything on the list at the start of school each day.

A named, robust and spacious bag such as a rucksack. Small, fashionable, ‘man bags’ are not fit for this purpose. The bag should be able to contain both sports kit
and all the text and exercise books required for a day’s learning.

Learning equipment should be kept in a soft see-through pencil case and include:

  • Black or blue pens for writing – pupils should use the pen that helps them write in the clearest and neatest fashion
  • HB Graphite pencils and rubber
  • Colouring pencils
  • Highlighter pens
  • Green biro
  • Glue stick
  • Small scissors
  • A clear rigid 30cm ruler
  • Scientific calculator – Casio or similar are recommended
  • Maths set, including a protractor, pair of compasses and a set square
  • Private reading book

Mobile Phone and Other Devices

Years 12-13

  • Mobile phones must be on silent at all times during the school day, including break and lunchtimes.
