Care of Property & Lost Property

All clothes, bags and accessories brought into School must be marked with the name of the owner.  Money must be kept at all times on the owner’s person or handed to a member of staff for safe-keeping.  Although every attempt will be made to recover lost property, the School accepts no responsibility for property lost in School.  Parents are, therefore, advised to see that their child’s belongings are fully insured whilst at School.  Lost property is stored in the cupboard at the foot of the East Stairs in the Main School Building, and laid out periodically for pupils to claim.
