  • Students are able collect their jewellery at the end of each week or their parents may collect it for them at the end of the day.
I just wanted to say that the new rule for wearing shoes and having shirts tucked in is brilliant. The boys looked so smart walking to school yesterday. It’s really made a difference. I think you carry yourself better in shoes and feel and look smarter. I always email I have a gripe so I thought I’d email to give a thumbs up!! My son Dylan is also happy with the change. In addition, the ban on mobile phones is also great.

Kind regards
