Start of the Spring Term 2016 - Tuesday, 5th January
Key information for students and parents about the start of the Spring Term.
We are excited to welcome students back to school in January after what we trust has been a restful Christmas break. Term begins for all year groups on Tuesday, 5th January as Monday, 4th January is a staff training day. Registration will take place at 8:40am and it is important that all students are at school in good time.
In order for the term to get off to a positive start, it is very important that all uniform is correct and that any new school shoes are leather or leather-effect. Please be aware that canvas shoes are not allowed. It is also important that girls in Year 7 to Year 11 have only single stud earrings in the ear lobe and hair is in accordance with the school rules.
If you have bought technology for your daughter, please be aware that our rules about mobile phones will also apply to any wearable technology capable of sending messages. As these items are not allowed in any exam or test situation, they are not practical for school use. They can also be of very high value and the school cannot take responsibility for any loss or damage occurring. Whilst we encourage the use of a simple wrist watch, the wearing of complex technology such as any smart watch including the apple watch is not appropriate and will be in contravention of the school rules.
