Mobile Phone Reminder

Students are not allowed to bring mobile phones to school. If they are seen, heard or found they will be confiscated and a parent/carer will need to collect them on the Friday of that week. If the phone was confiscated on the Friday, it will be ready for collection the following Friday. If you feel that there are special circumstances for your child to have their phone on them, you will need to email Mr Enebeli, Head of Upper School, to request this. If your request is authorised, your child will need to hand their mobile phone into Reception in the morning and collect at the end of the day.
