Textbooks policy

Textbooks are issued in some subjects.

They are not issued for all subjects, for a number of reasons. These include:

  • Not all topics are covered by one text.
  • In certain subject areas, textbooks date very quickly.
  • Faculties maintain a mix of class sets to develop the breadth of study, to cater for different learning abilities and language skills, and to create a variety of practical skills.
  • The school recognises that it is difficult for students to manage up to six textbooks a day.
  • Many texts are expensive to replace if they are lost or not returned.

Teachers provide worksheets and other materials which are easier for students to carry and can be kept with the class activities completed in their books. Parents are requested to encourage junior students to paste all sheets into their books, and senior students to organise sheets in folders.

For further information about textbooks for a particular subject, please contact the Head Teacher.
