A basic element of education is self-discipline, as are the ability to meet expected standards of personal presentation and to produce work of a high quality. The development of excellent organisational and time management skills are keys to success in both academic qualifications and future working life. Our aim is to be consistent in our approach throughout the year and we do expect high standards at all times, undertaking uniform and equipment checks on a regular basis. If you have any queries regarding your daughter's uniform, planner use or academic target setting, please do not hesitate to contact her Form Tutor in the first instance.
