Our Expectations & Policies

We require students to

  • Maintain an excellent record of attendance [95%+] to ensure qualification as a full-time student. Students must register twice a day and for all lessons, including designated study periods. If a student is absent, for any reason, school should be notified on the first day of absence.
  • Maintain a good record of punctuality, registering at school by 8.45am each morning.
  • Adhere to the dress code outlined below.
  • Wear the ID badge at all times.
  • Use study time wisely and productively, to promote independent learning and to reinforce the skills and knowledge gained in lessons. Students are required to spena minimum of eight hours per fortnight  in the Silent Study Room or in the John Crewdson Library.
  • Meet deadlines set by staff for the purpose of effective continuity in learning.
  • Consider always their responsibility to the whole school; to pupils in the lower school; to their peers; to the staff and to the wider community.
