Equipped To Learn

School Stationery

Dear Parent/Carer

I am writing to ask for your support in ensuring your child is equipped to learn.

Each child needs daily a:

  • Student planner
  • Pen
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Reading book
  • Bag

For Maths, students in every year group need to bring a scientific calculator to College every day. We believe that the best (and most affordable model) is the LOGIK LK83 and College can purchase them at the reduced price of £5 by buying in bulk. If you wish to take advantage of this offer please ask your son/daughter to place their order and pay their £5 to the Finance Office at the College by Friday 24th March to allow us to order the correct quantity.*

The following calculators are also acceptable and available to buy in the shops but are more expensive:

  • CASIO fx83
  • CASIO fx85

Alternatively you can use your online Squid account to order and pay for a LOGIK LK83. If you need any assistance with this please contact the Finance Office on 01977 657600.

From the 20th February 2017 students will be able to purchase items of stationery at the new Equipment Shop, which will be open to all students in the Library Learning Centre daily from 8.10am to 8.25am. The prices are:

  • Pen – 15p
  • Pencil – 10p
  • Ruler – 15p

All staff including P&A Mentors, the Year Offices and the Leadership Team will be checking equipment daily. This is not a commercial project by the College, but an effort to ensure that every student is Responsible and Resourceful and follows the Minsthorpe Way.

Thank you for your support,

Mrs Adams
Assistant Principal

Mr Henshaw
