• Should your son arrive late to school, return to school during the day from an appointment or leave school during the day for an appointment, he must report to Ms Newcombe in Reception.

‘Off Games’: contact Ms Newcombe

If your son is not well enough to take part in Games he should bring a letter from you confirming the reason. This letter should be handed, in the first instance, to Ms Newcombe (not the teacher in charge of the game) before 8.30 am on the day in question. On Mondays, boys who are off games are free to go home after Period 5. On Wednesday afternoons, all boys in the Lower and Middle Schools who are ‘off games’ should report to the Library at 2.30pm where a register will be taken by a member of staff. Boys in the Upper School are allowed to go home to study but must ‘sign out’ with Ms Newcombe when they leave.
