We provide keyboards for students from Y3 - Y11 for use in school only. We strongly recommend that you purchase a keyboard for use at home; this is to encourage the development of touch typing skills in all our students.

In certain quadmesters, students will need sport-specific equipment such as football boots, shin pads or gum shields. Letters will be sent home to give plenty of notice when these are needed. If parents are unable to source these items, they should email Mr Songhurst and he will do his best to help.
Following consultation with staff and students a new PE kit was chosen for primary and secondary children. This can now be ordered online from Trutex Direct using the link below.
