Lockers

The College has a locker leasing arrangement whereby lockers are provided in every classroom for students who wish to lease them.  To provide the sum of money required to purchase the lockers and maintain them and yet not make the cost to parents too high, the charge for a locker is divided into two components:

  1. A refundable deposit of £10 is held against non-return of keys and also for non-return of books when a student leaves in year 11, or damage to the locker through misuse. The deposit will only be refunded when a student leaves the college and has been cleared through the college clearing system.  Should a student leave before reaching school leaving age the leasing charge paid for complete unused years is also refunded.
  1. An annual leasing charge of £4.00 per annum, payable in one sum at the start of the student’s career in the college. Thus for a student entering

There are many advantages to a student leasing a locker, but perhaps the most important is that it provides a secure base for the variety of books, equipment and clothing students brings to school.  I hope that you will feel able to join the scheme.  Please complete the form attached and return to the Finance Office.  Keys will be issued as soon as possible after your child enters the college in September. If your child loses their key a replacement may be purchased for £3.00 from the Finance Office at break or lunchtime.

If you would like your child to have a locker, but genuinely cannot afford the charges, please write a short and confidential explanatory letter and attach it to the form.  The college will find other means of meeting the costs, so that no child is disadvantaged.
