Frequently Asked Questions
We seem to have different colour blazers and trousers, is this correct?
We have sent a letter to parents and carers to explain the issues we have recently been made aware of concerning uniform.
We have asked our uniform suppliers to swap any non-matching items without charge. Please review the email sent for further details.
Do we have to buy uniform from Pages or Simmonds?
Yes, please ensure you use our uniform suppliers to make sure you have the appropriate uniform, along with the correct logos, colours and fits.
Which colour PE top should we purchase?
You should have been emailed the coloured PE top you need to purchase, along with your form group. Uniform suppliers are aware that they need to embroider student initials at the time of purchase.
What equipment do we need to purchase?
All students will need to purchase a base set of equipment including:
- Mathematics set
How do we buy the Art/Study pack?
Once we know more about how we operate under COVID in September, we will publish details of how you can purchase these.
When do students receive iPads?
Students will receive iPads in September once the term begins.
What time do students need to arrive on 8 September?
Students should arrive for 8.30am, ready to start form time at 8.40am. Staff will be on site to welcome students and ensure they know where to go.
Can I change my son/daughter's form group?
No. Unfortunately the form groups are now set and cannot be changed. We did take all requests into account, and have ensured we adopt a fair approach to all.
How will my child be taught? Will it be in streamed classes?
Students will be taught in their form groups, which are mixed ability sets. Staff are confident and skilled in differentiating for students of all abilities.
How will students be able to buy lunch?
We are currently reviewing our school procedures in line with COVID, and in discussion with our new catering company about the best way to work with this on site. We hope to give more detailed guidance by the end of August when we will receive the most up to date guidance from the Government.
