Equipment

How will my child know what books to bring?

Your child will be given a personal printed timetable and planner at the start of the year. They will need to check their timetable each evening and pack their bag ready for the next day. All students are issued with their own personal organiser at the beginning of each term for this purpose. It has a number of functions.

  • A personal diary for daily work
  • A place to record work to complete at home
  • A communication medium between parent and teacher

What equipment will my child need at the Academy?

The following items are to be brought into the academy each day. Equipment checks will be conducted at the beginning of each day, in registration time, to ensure the student has the right equipment to access learning tasks in lessons.

  • 2 Pens (Black)
  • 2 Pencils
  • Pencil Sharpener
  • Eraser
  • Ruler (minimum 15cm)
  • Glue Stick
  • Green Pen (For making improvements to work)
  • Colouring Pencils
  • Highlighter
  • Maths Calculator (Casio fx-83GT plus)
  • Named Pencil Case
  • Reading Book
  • ID Card

Please note that for safety reasons liquid ink erasers, such as Tippex, are not allowed.

Mobile phones should, under no circumstances, be brought into and used in the Academy.

If a mobile phone is seen it will be confiscated and returned at the end of the day.  If it is confiscated a second time, we will ask that a parent or carer come to the Academy to collect it at a convenient time. Contact between parents and students and vice versa can always be made through the College Admin Office.
