Equipment Expectations

In order to achieve above our potential, it is important that we come to school ready and prepared to take an active role in our learning just as we would be expected to attend a place of work ready and prepared to carry out our role. Every student needs a suitable bag to carry school books. Sport, dance and drama equipment should be carried in a separate bag.

For each subject you will need:

  • Planner
  • Workbook
  • Completed homework
  • Pens and pencils
  • Coloured Pencils
  • Ruler

Subject-specific equipment:

English: Small dictionary
Maths: Calculator, Compass, Protractor
Science: Calculator
Art: Sketchbook
Food: Food & All necessary ingredients and occasionally an ovenproof dish.
Drama, Dance and PE: a separate pair of trousers/leggings and a sweatshirt or T-shirt.
PE: PE kit as outlined here. (Studded boots and shin pads can be used during rugby or football options at set times during the year. Gum shields are advisable for Rugby).

Additional Items:

At times it may be useful to have a Flash Drive or Memory Stick in order to transport work to and from school if the files are too big to email. This is not a compulsory item and is up to the individual student’s choice. It is vital to ensure you have a separate copy of your work saved on a PC hard drive either at home or at school as a backup in case your flash drive is lost or damaged.

You will have to re-do any coursework that is lost if your flash drive is lost or damaged.

The Governors do not accept responsibility for loss or damage to the personal property of students. Parents should make sure that all property can be identified. Students should not bring large sums of cash etc to school.
