Full boarders additional items
All personal items and school uniform must be clearly named/labelled; only sewn-in labels for clothing are acceptable (not iron on).
As well as the requirements given on the uniform list, we ask full boarders to have a couple of sets of home clothing for the weekends:
- One smart set (chinos or smart jeans, shirt or polo shirt etc.)
- One set of older clothes
- One casual set (tracksuit or similar & a hoodie)
- One warm, waterproof coat
These are then washed and ready for the following weekend. Washing is part of the daily routine and belongings are returned to the boarders within a day or two.
Boarders should also have a home coat suitable for the season and one or two extra pairs of shoes/boots. They may use their school coat if they prefer (including hats and gloves as required).
No food items, sweets or treats are allowed. School provides all necessary meals and treats for the boarders as appropriate. Hairdryers are provided on the girls’ floor.
No valuable items, smartwatches or gaming devices should be brought into school. Pocket money is controlled via the school accounts, a small amount is charged at the beginning of each term and distributed as needed, (approx. £35.00 per term). Any remaining money is refunded at the end of term. An empty wallet/purse would be advisable. No cash is required to be brought into school.
Full boarders should arrive with only one medium/large suitcase and a smaller rucksack style bag for day trips out. In addition, they need one small, packed case ready to go for exeats and half terms with at least 3 full sets of clothing.
All medication must be handed to the School Nurse
