Suggested contents for your pencil case

1) A selection of pens (black, blue and green) – Green pens will be used for responding to your teachers’ feedback. Be aware that fountain pens are often responsible for ink leaks that can cause difficulties

2) Pencils/coloured pencils (a good range of colours) – felt tips often result in smudges on your work so coloured pencils are recommended

3) A pencil sharpener

4) A ruler (15cm ruler should fit in most pencil cases)

5) A protractor

6) A compass

7) A rubber (we do not allow tip-pex/correction fluid)

8) Glue stick

9) Hand sanitiser gel

10) The Maths department usually sell scientific calculators but you may want to purchase one from other retailers
