The wearing of school uniform is compulsory. Full uniform must be worn in school and when journeying to and from school. When a student is admitted, it is on condition that parents accept our school uniform regulations, and therefore it is assumed that parents are willing to ensure that their child conforms to these in every respect.
Pay for your child’s school meals, school trips, ties, badges, revision guides and more via our payment systems.
Transport to and from school is of course the responsibility of parents/carers but we will endeavour to assist in any arrangements to ease with this issue. There are a number of school buses which travel to our school from the surrounding areas.
The House System
The purpose of the House system is to further promote community, partnership and participation in school. The House system aims to do this by providing House members with enjoyable and competitive House events and House activities. Such events/activities take the form of inter-House sporting competitions, House challenges and extra-curricular visits.
