All students benefit by having their own scientific calculator. Although all scientific calculators are suitable, we recommend the following model that feature a 'Natural Textbook' display which makes them easier and more intuitive to use:

Casio fx-83GTX - suitable for KS3, GCSE and A level (More Info)

We currently have these available to buy from reception at £8.00 each.


Students are expected to be proud of all the work in their books and therefore should:

  • Underline the date and title
  • Use a pen for written work and a pencil for charts and diagrams
  • Show all working out for every calculation
  • Stick in all worksheets
