Improving Campus Security

If you have visited the School recently you may have noticed that the School's employees now wear ID cards on black lanyards. This is to aid the security of the campus for the welfare of pupils and staff. Visitors to the School are issued with cerise lanyards. During the teaching day, parents who come onto the campus are asked to report to Park Lodge Reception or Faringdon Lodge Reception to receive their visitor's lanyard. For the time being, parents going to watch sports matches should go directly to the venue without signing in.
