Students should have the following essential equipment at school each day so they are prepared and ready for the day's learning activities:

  • School Planner (issued by the school in September)
  • Black & blue pens
  • Pencils
  • Coloured pencils (these are more useful than felt tips)
  • Pencil Sharpener
  • Eraser
  • 30cm ruler
  • Protractor
  • Compass
  • Calculator – scientific, with a fraction button (we recommend the CASIO FX-83GTX or 85GTX)

It would also be useful if students have the following items to support their learning: 

  • Green pen
  • A dry-wipe pen
  • Glue stick (i.e. Pritt stick or similar)
  • Large, strong bag to carry school books and equipment (strictly no handbags)
  • A separate bag for P.E. kit on required days


Please ensure all items are named for ease of returning to owners if lost. 

Valuable items should not be brought into school and we would discourage students from bringing in expensive electronic devices; Fitzharrys cannot accept any responsibility for any belongings that are damaged or go missing.  On unavoidable occasions, valuable items or large sums of money brought in to school must never be left unguarded in coats or bags; instead, they should be passed directly to Reception at the start of the day for safe-keeping.

We appreciate that some parents and carers would like their child to bring a mobile phone to school for reasons of personal safety.  Please read our Mobile Phone Policy for guidance. 

Students are advised to make use of school lockers to safely store belongings. They are available for £25 for a student’s school career. £2.50 will be paid on return of the locker key at the end of Year 11. Refunds are available if students leave Fitzharrys School before this time.
