Student Planners and Required Equipment

Each student will be provided with a student planner in which they will glue their timetable. The students also use the planner to record their homework and key assessments and targets for improvement.

We ask parents to check and sign the planner regularly to view homework set and encourage their child to progress.  Parents can also use the planner to communicate with school. Your child’s planner will be checked by their Personal Tutor during form time

Students are expected to come fully equipped with their planner, a reading book and appropriate equipment for each day’s lessons.  Access to an English dictionary at home is essential, and Collins Easy Learner French Dictionary is strongly recommended to support homework and class activities.  All students must be equipped with a pencil case containing the following equipment:

  • 2 writing pens either blue or black ink ( KS4 need black pens only for all exams)
  • 1 purple pen
  • HB pencil
  • 2B sketching pencil
  • 12 colouring pencils
  • Highlighter pen
  • Ruler, rubber and pencil sharpener
  • Calculator, Compass, protractor
  • Glue stick
  • USB stick
  • Multimedia headset (Earphones)
  • Reading book

Students should bring a named water bottle that they can refill during the day from one of our water coolers.
