Care of Property

All clothes and equipment 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 daughter’s belongings (such as calculators, watches, mobile phones etc.) are fully insured whilst at School. They are not covered by the School’s insurance policies.
