Please note that Textbook online orders from Caxton need to be placed asap. According to Caxton’s new system, Textbooks will not be delivered to school, there is an option for home delivery or to collect directly from Caxton themselves.

Please consider donating any unwanted gently used, good quality stationery to Outliers for their annual stationery drive. 20 house points will be awarded for every donation brought to the class teacher. Outliers run after-school programmes across the peninsula.


The final sale of the year will be on 1 December from 12:30 – 14:30. The shop is needing a stock boost and would appreciate your donations!



We are collecting children’s gifts for the Red Cross Children’s Hospital. Please donate good quality second-hand or new toys, games or books which will be given to the children at Christmas time. The Children’s Hospital Trust has asked us this year for the gifts not to be wrapped, please.


We are appealing to parents to PLEASE mark your daughter’s items of clothing.  We are still sitting with piles of unmarked items which are now going to be handed over to the Second-Hand Shop to be sold.  Going forward, we will return items that are marked to the pupil, but any unmarked items will be given to the Second-Hand Shop.


Micklefield caps/hats are compulsory and all girls must have a cap/hat at school to wear at break time, Phys Ed lessons, and Sport Hour.


Please check the Term 4 schedule (Edana App under Documentation) for the summer sport programme.
