We expect students to bring a pencil case containing:

We strongly encourage pupils to use a school bag to keep all their belongings safe and secure travelling to and from school. Extra equipment such as a red pen for self and peer corrections, an eraser, a calculator, highlighters etc are all desirable, but we will provide these where needed in classes.

What happens if my child does not wear the correct uniform?

Students who don’t conform to our high expectations will either need to return home to change or will be given the option to borrow missing items. Should they refuse, we will contact parents to support us to resolve the issue in a timely manner. 

We do however believe that the way we present ourselves plays a huge part in our success as an academy; it makes us professional in our appearance and our attitude. For that reason we set high expectations on the standard of student presentation.
