          WHAT TO PACK IN YOUR SCHOOL BAG         



We expect learners to arrive in school equipped for the day’s lessons. All exercise books, text books etc are supplied, but learners will need the following:


  • Backpack/ bag  -  The sheer number of books that you need to carry around means a strong and sturdy backpack is vital.


  • Maths set  -  Learning geometry means that a maths set with ruler, compass, set square and protractor is a must-have.


  • Highlighters  -  Highlighters are invaluable for everything from marking out key quotes in texts to colour-coding revision notes.


  • Writing pen  -  You can’t take the effort out of writing essays, but having a good pen to write them with can make the process a little easier – and it can also help to make handwriting clearer.


  • Coloured gel pens/ coloured pencils  -  Coloured gel pens or coloured pencils can really bring drawings and diagrams to life in a range of subjects from geography to science and, like highlighters, they’re also very useful for colour-coding revision notes.


  • Pencil case  -  to hold all your pens, pencils, coloured pencils / pens, rulers and erasers.


  • Notepad  -  Notebooks and notepads are another real school essential for everything from taking notes in lessons to planning out essays and jotting down things to remember – like when homework’s due to be done by.


  • Zipper bag  -  On the subject of homework, zipper bags or sheet protectors are the perfect way to make sure that it doesn’t get dog-eared as it’s carried round in your bag before you hand it in.
