All students:

The following equipment is required within school every day by all students in years 10-13. It is essential that students are fully prepared for the learning experience and have the equipment to allow them to take a full part in all learning opportunities. We have divided the equipment list into items that are essential and those which are desirable.

In addition ALL students will need a combination padlock for their locker. They will need to bring this on the first day and inform the reception team of the combination code during the induction process.
