Pupils are regularly reminded about the equipment expectations at Mercia School. Staff support pupils each morning with their equipment, making sure they are fully prepared and organised for the school day.

To support pupils, a stationery shop is open every morning. Where required, pupils are supported to purchase equipment. Equipment is available from the school for the following price:

  • Art Sketch Pad – £3.00 (a compulsory purchase)
  • Maths Calculator –  £10.00
  • Pencil Case with all equipment -  £5.00

Please note we do not support expensive stationery purchases. We stock the basic equipment at school, for your convenience. Any payment made is deemed a donation to the school fund to support our enrichment offer.
