Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How is the School Uniform organised?
We will provide a new blazer and school tie to Year 7 students when they start the school. As students grow out of their uniform, parents are expected to buy official replacements, and there are more details about how to do this here: https://www.pbuniform-online.co.uk/dykehouse It is planned that Year 6 students will be measured on Tuesday 18th or Wednesday 19th June from 3.30pm-6pm where you will be given a voucher with a code to order your free blazer online. You an choose to order uniform into school or form home delivery.

What are the Transport arrangements?
We have liaised with Partner Primary Schools and parents on an individual basis to design the best transport arrangements during the Transition period. For many students it is hoped they can get used to using the means of transport that will be undertaken from September. If applicable, bus passes will be ready for September.

What equipment will my child need?
All students will be provided with a planner. They are expected to have a school bag that is large enough to contain an A4 folder. The basic equipment that is required from September is:

  • A black pen.
  • A ruler.
  • A pencil and pencil sharpener.
  • An eraser.
  • A reading book.
  • A scientific calculator

What are the lunchtime arrangements?
Year 7 students have their lunch as a year group, between 12.30 - 1.00pm. This ensures there is minimal queuing time and that they can eat together in their first year at the academy. The students can add money using optical finger recognition stations in the school. Students will also get a Parent Pay log on where you can add funds online. The diner will deduct the money from the pupil's finger once they have purchased their food.
