Will Parents and carers be able to meet the staff before my child starts school?

We would usually have at least two induction events prior to your child joining us in September.

What equipment should I purchase for my child?

We expect each child to be well organised and be well prepared for learning by having the following equipment with them each day: a pen, a pencil, a ruler, a scientific calculator and a geometry set.

Individual subject areas will provide guidance on other specialist equipment required once students start school.

Will my child still be eligible for free school meals?

If you are currently eligible for free school meals, this will be protected until Universal Credit is introduced (expected March 2022) even if your circumstances change. If you are still in education on this date, you will be eligible until you finish the phase of schooling (primary or secondary) they are in.

However, if your family circumstances have recently changed and you believe you may now be eligible for free school meals then you should visit to access the information on how to apply.
