Mobile phones are not allowed at any time by day pupils or boarders. Any phones required by pupils travelling to and from school should be handed in to their houseparents on arrival.
Much thought has been given to the use and accessibility of other electronics for the boarders. As a school, our ethos embraces traditional values and encourages all our boarders to be actively engaged both physically and socially. We endeavour to give the boarders a fun, stimulating and varied programme of activities during the evenings and throughout the weekend.
As such, only Year 7 and 8 boarders are allowed electronics within the school. This is a senior privilege and is simply limited to iPods, Kindles or an iTouch. Laptops and iPads will not be allowed unless required for learning support or at the direction of the school. We appreciate overseas children will undoubtedly bring with them various electronics in transit; these should be handed in to their houseparents on arrival to school.
These devices are purely for use over the weekend and the children are only allowed them post match tea on a Saturday and during the day on a Sunday at appropriate times.
With a continued busy and active programme, their use will be minimal, but at the same we appreciate they are part of modern day society for young people and that responsible use is part of their education before entering the senior school world.
