Equipment and Expectations

You need to make sure that you have the following basic equipment with you each day:

  • Stationery: Black or blue pen, pencil, rubber, pencil sharpener
  • Calculator for maths lessons
  • Brooke Weston Academy smart card
  • Exercise books for each lesson
  • Reading book for English lessons


You will be given a locker on your first day at Brooke Weston Academy. This is where you can keep all of your personal belongings. It is your responsibility to buy a padlock for it and it is a good idea to give a spare key to your tutor to look after just in case you lose or forget yours.

Mobile Phones

Please note that if you bring in your mobile phones into Brooke Weston Academy, it must be switched off and left in your lockers at all times during the day. The school takes no responsibility for mobile phones which are brought into the Academy and we advise you not to bring it in at all. If you need to contact your parents during the school day you should go to reception or there are two payphones in the Academy for you to use during breakfast and lunch and these are situated next to the library and the Weston Theatre, if you need to make a call.


Will I get lots of homework?

You are likely to be given some homework to complete each day, but it is up to individual teachers to set homework when they think it is necessary. It is a good idea to buy yourself a homework diary or note pad to write down your homework and deadlines.

Smart Cards

The Academy uses a smart card system to enable a secure and safe environment for students and staff. The smart card is used:

  • to register you when entering the building,
  • as your bus pass,
  • to purchase your meals in the restaurant,
  • when you borrow books and laptops from the library.

You are expected to bring your smart card with you every day. The first issue of a smart card is supplied by Brooke Weston, with any replacement smart cards charged at £5.00 per smart card. Replacement smart cards may be ordered from the Finance Office. When you attend the transfer day during the summer term, you will have your photographs taken for your smart card, so please ensure you wear a white shirt on transfer day.
