Failure to adhere to the uniform policy is likely to result in a request to borrow. Failure to do so will be treated as defiance.


Mobile Devices All devices should be turned off and put into school bags, together with earphones, before entering the school site. Mobile devices and earphones are likely to be confiscated if seen by a member of staff. Confiscated items can be collected after school and will require collection from a parent on second and subsequent occasions.  There may be occasions where teachers will allow pupils to use mobile devices in lessons with their express permission. Internet enabled devices, such as watches, will also be confiscated if they are a distraction to learning, and/or being used to communicate or listen to music.



Equipment Bringing the correct equipment to every lesson and every examination allows you to proceed with work as efficiently and independently as possible. It allows for a positive and calm start to every session, prevents time being wasted and strain on the pupil teacher working relationship. Pupils must bring a school bag large enough to carry kit, books, an A4 folder and their lunch in addition to a pencil case (clear case during exam periods) containing ALL of the following items:

☑Two black or blue pens                      ☑ Rubber ☑ Pair of compasses

☑ Ruler                                                     ☑ Sharpener ☑ Protractor

☑ Scientific calculator                            ☑ Two Pencils ☑ Highlighters
