Lost Property

We have a lot of unnamed lost property in school. Please encourage your child to come along to Student Support any break or lunchtime to reclaim lost clothing or equipment. Also, during the last week of half term, all lost property will be on display in the Lower School Foyer for a last chance to reclaim it before it is sent off for recycling.
