Please can parents ensure no mobile phones cameras are being used if parents are in a class or changing area. If students need to bring mobiles to class they must be kept out of sight in their bags at all times
Uniform can now be purchased via our website uniform page. We do still have some shoes and tights in stock so do email if you wish to purchase these. We are introducing a new senior level black leotard for the Vocational grades! Parents please take note of our uniform policy on our website policy page as it is a requirement that students wear correct uniform, with hair in a bun for ballet and up for other classes.
Please be aware we have updated some of our policies – please ensure you read them. They will be emailed and found on our website.
