Students are required to be properly equipped at all times. We would ask you as parents to check regularly that students still have the following items:
- A scientific calculator
- A dictionary
- An exercise book for 'draft' work
- A suitable bag, (i.e. a bag capable of holding A4 sized exercise books)
Specific subjects may require additional resources when projects are being made to go home: such as art, catering and resistant materials. Students will be told about these requirements from subject teachers when the occasion arises.
Apart from small amounts of money, students are advised not to bring valuables to college. The college does not accept responsibility for any valuables brought in.
Lap/palm top computers, etc. should not be brought to college except in connection with specific lessons, before and after which they should be given to staff for safe-keeping. Mobile phones must remain switched off throughout the college day except during lunch and break times. Personal music players may be listened to at break or lunchtime, but not between or during lessons.
Please ensure that all uniform, sports kit and other belongings are named. Lost property is located in the lost property office at the top of the PE corridor in the main building. Named items will be returned to students via tutors. Unnamed items will be kept for a limited time and will then be disposed of. Students can look in lost property between 1.30pm – 1.45pm every day. Any bags or belongings left in classrooms or on top of lockers will be periodically removed and taken to lost property.
The college can accept no responsibility for loss of, or damage to, valuables brought to college.
A, I and E Years:
All tutor groups have padlock lockers. Students are to supply their own padlock for their locker. Should they forget their key or combination this will be treated in the same way as any other equipment being forgotten. Should a student require a padlock to be removed due to loss of key or combination then they should inform their Tutor who will arrange for the padlock to be removed.
End of Term:
At the end of term all students must empty their lockers and remove padlocks.
