Lockers and Security
Following a couple of incidents of lost/stolen items, we are cracking down on security at school and are requesting that all valuables are either a) secured in padlocked lockers or b) handed in to Mrs Tarr at reception for secure storage. From next week the school will be enforcing this and tutors will be checking boys’ lockers and we ask for your support. Padlocks will be available to purchase at £5 from reception if required.
