Essential Equipment

Stationery

In addition to our Academy uniform all students are required to have essential equipment with them everyday. This includes; a pen(s), pencil(s), a ruler, a pencil case and a calculator. Items of stationery can be purchased from Year Managers during Form Time each morning.

Student Planner

At the start of each academic year every child receives a student planner. The planner is an essential communication tool between home/academy. There are sections for emergency contact details, personal and homework timetables, a weekly planner, absence notes and medical consent forms. Please take the time to check your child’s planner regularly.

Replacement planners can be purchased from our Main Office for £3.50

Cashless System Card

Our academy operates a ‘Cashless Catering System’ where each student is issued with a card which they can credit with money at top-up machines throughout school. Each student receives their card in Year 7 and is expected to bring the card to school on a daily basis (food cannot be purchased in the canteen with cash). The card can be used to purchase food at breakfast, break and lunchtimes. If a student loses their cashless card,  a replacement can be purchased from the canteen for the cost of £2.

Locker Hire

Lockers may be hired each academic year. Hire agreement letters are sent out to every student at the end of the summer term in preparation for the September start.

Please note that there is a high demand for lockers, so we cannot guarantee availability. There is a £7 fee to hire a locker for a full academic year. Payment should be sent, along with your signed agreement letter, to Mrs Ashton in the Main Office. Should a student lose their locker key, a charge of £3.50 will be made for a replacement.
