New Parent Guide
This is a comprehensive guide with, we hope, all the information you need for the year ahead. It contains information about our uniform and equipment, our school payment system, the cafeteria, reports and assessments, how to report an absence and what to do if your child is ill at school, plus a welcome from Mrs Hill, our Headteacher, and Mr Gleeson, our Head of Year 7. If, after reading this guide, you have a query, please do not hesitate to email us.

Second-Hand Uniform - Sale CANCELLED
The second-hand uniform shop sells the legacy uniform, the majority of which new Year 7s will not be wearing. For this reason, we are not going to hold a sale on Saturday 10th June. Instead, we will be selling BHS blazers and skirts before and after the Year 7 Parent Welcome Evening on Tuesday 4th July.
Once term begins in September, students and parents can buy uniform (not then legacy uniform) from the second-hand shop every Friday lunchtime. If you are able to commit to an hour, one or two Fridays every term and would like to join the parents who run the Second-Hand Uniform Shop, please email Roop Kumar.
Summer Camp, 31st Aug - 1st Sep
We are holding a summer camp for incoming Year 7 students on the 31st August - 1st September between 09:00 and 15:00. The camp will be both fun and educational but most importantly will help to reassure your child as they embark on their secondary school adventure. There will be a cost per child, per day (payable on ScoPay) but this is dependant on the number of students that sign up. The camp is not compulsory however it's a great opportunity for your child to get to know the school lay out and start making friends which will help them feel more settled about joining us in September.
Students are to wear comfortable clothes (trainers, joggers, t shirt and a hoodie). Please ensure your child also has a waterproof and or sun cream / hat as some of the time they will be outside. Your child will need a packed lunch for the day and plenty of water (no fizzy/energy drinks please). Please ensure you do not bring any nuts into school as we are a nut free zone. They should also bring a pencil case.
To reserve a place for your child please click on this link before June 10th.

Uniform Fitting Dates
Sportcrest is our uniform supplier for new uniform. The uniform policy and information about our Second-Hand Uniform Shop can be found here. A uniform list can also be found in the New Parent Guide above.
Naming school uniform
In a school of over 1000 students, it would be beneficial if all items of school uniform were labelled. Woven and/or printed name tapes can be ordered online, via the Sportcrest website or you can purchase a laundry marker from Amazon and most stationery shops.
Additional uniform items
Students will be required to purchase a House T-shirt from Sportcrest. They will be worn at various House events throughout the year.
