Lunch Boys may eat their lunch where they wish within the school grounds. Year 9 boys can use the common room, where there are toastie machines and a microwave, or stay in the courtyard area in front of the House. The cafe is located in the Chapman Room and is open at lunchtime every weekday. It offers a wide range of food items and drinks, with healthy alternatives. Wherever boys eat, they are expected to put all rubbish in rubbish bins and cans/plastic bottles in recycling containers. A limited number of places are available for dayboys who wish to have lunch in the Dining Hall. Boys should apply on the first day of each term through the Housemaster. Lunchtime Activities Boys are encouraged to be active during lunchtime and make use of the sporting facilities such as Upper, the gymnasium and the weight training room. The library and the computer suites are open at lunchtime. Many interhouse events take place during lunchtime and boys will either participate or support House teams. Uniform Shop The Uniform Shop in Gloucester St, where you can buy uniforms for all sporting codes and basic stationery items, is open every school day between 10am–5pm. Second-hand uniforms are sold in the Uniform Shop.
Laptops, Books and Stationery All textbooks issued by the school, exercise books and stationery items must be named. Students are expected to look after their books and keep them in good order. Boys are asked to use a school bag to carry their gear during the day. The boys need to ensure that they carry their laptops with them at all times. When not in use, they need to make sure they secure them safely in their lockers. Bicycles Boys are encouraged to cycle to school. They are asked to lock their bike in the cycle shed in the basement of the House. Some sporting codes (rowing, for example) require boys to cycle to venues for practice or competition days. Helmets must be worn at all times and bikes should have appropriate lights, especially in the winter months. Students are expected to follow the road code and to respect other cyclists and pedestrians at all times.
