Equipment for Learning

Student books are a record of learning and a valuable resource in preparing for exams.

As such, an appropriate bag must be used to ensure their safe movement between home and the Academy. An A4 sized bag and/or handbags are not appropriate because they do not allow students to keep their work securely and neatly due to their small size.

All exercise books, paper and text books will be provided by the academy for your child.  Students will, however, be expected to provide other items of stationery, including pens and pencils, for themselves.

As a minimum requirement students will need:-

  • 2 black pens
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Rubber
  • Pencil sharpener

In addition it would be extremely useful for them to have:-

  • Coloured crayons/felt tips
  • Glue stick
  • Pocket dictionary
  • Protractor
  • Set square
  • Scientific calculator
  • A compass

It is advisable that ALL equipment, including items of uniform and PE Kit, are clearly marked with your child’s name.
