 Jewellery may not be worn by children in the Academy at any time especially necklaces, bracelets, rings or ear-rings. This is for their own safety and the safety of others. The greatest problem is with newly pierced ears. Would parents considering having their child’s ears pierced please do so at the start of a long holiday to avoid any difficulties? Please note that earrings MUST NOT be worn for P.E. and long hair must be tied back.

School Bag

  • Children need an envelope style book bag. Please do not send large bags to school due to limited space available.
