Students are to be fit for work at all times. Any additional fashion items that impinge on the safe and effective running of the school will not be allowed. Any items not listed here which the school feels are questionable will be subject to the Principal's discretion.


Every student is expected to provide the following basic items of equipment for all lessons: pencil case containing blue or black pen and a spare pen; pencil, ruler, eraser, calculator; and an appropriate bag to carry all equipment. In some subjects text books will be issued on loan and students will be required to pay for any loss or damage.

Expensive equipment and large sums of money should not be brought into school.  Examples include:

  • mobile phones or pagers
  • radios
  • personal stereos
  • MP3 players/iPods

Any of these items that are seen or used in school will be confiscated. The Academy cannot be held responsible for the loss of students' property which is brought on site against the advice and rules of the school.
