Students must attend school in full school uniform with their usual smart appearance (no lockdown hair colours or styles!) and bring along their own drinks bottle, hand sanitiser (for personal use) and usual classroom equipment - pen, pencil, ruler, rubber, sharpener, calculator, pair of compasses and a protractor.
Please also remind students that mobile phones must not be used in school and should be out of sight at all times. As it will not be possible to deposit phones at Reception in September students will be responsible for keeping their own phones safe and out of sight.
There will be no break-time canteen, but light lunches will be available.
At the end of the school day Year 7 and 8 will leave lessons 5 minutes early to ensure safe movement to buses and home.
GCSE and A level Art coursework
All coursework can now be collected from the school, so please contact us to arrange a suitable time for safe collection.
Please also return any resources/books that were borrowed during lockdown
