A reminder that all S3-S6 students should be bringing their iPads in charged. Above 50% should be sufficient to see you through the day.

Please continue to take care of your iPad and do not play games on them during lesson time. Remember that there is a complete ban on Snapchat and if students continue to use Facebook Messenger in lessons, there may well be a complete ban on that app too!

If you do not have your iPad because it is being repaired, then it is your responsibility to speak to your teacher for any paper copies of theory notes and homework exercises etc. in the meantime.
