What Students Need to Bring to School / Lockers
General Equipment List
Students are responsible for bringing the correct equipment to school each day, in a sensibly-sized bag to keep their books and equipment in.
Appropriate exercise books for the day’s lessons
Writing equipment in a named pencil case (blue or black pens and pencils, ruler, eraser and colouring pencils)
Maths equipment (compass, protractor)
Appropriate PE kit
Other subjects may also issue specialist equipment lists
Your child may at first find it difficult to remember the correct books and equipment each day. It is a great help if you can help them pack their bag the night before.
Students are able to hire a locker to leave equipment in at school. Details will be sent out at the beginning of term.
Lockers are held exclusively for Year 7 students during the first week of term in September, after which they are made available to the rest of the school population. They cost £5 to hire for a year. Students must provide padlocks – these need to be sturdy. It should also be noted that the mechanism on some of our lockers does not secure properly with smaller padlocks – the diameter of the padlock bolt should be between 4-6mm. It is strongly recommended that anyone wanting a locker takes up that option in the first week as the chances of securing one if left later are low.
