Mobile phones are allowed only with a letter of permission and must be switched off (not in silent mode) in school. Rules for sixth form are different.

The personal use of mobile phones is forbidden anywhere on the school site. Photographs must not be taken, using mobile phones, on the field or anywhere else around the school site.

However there are 2 exceptions to this rule for students in Years 7 -11:

1. If a teacher specifically directs a student to use it in class ( i.e. for photographing work)

2. Year 10 and 11 may use their phones to play music in their social rooms at lunchtime. The phone must remain in a pocket and headphones must be used. If they are seen doing anything else with the phone it will be confiscated.
