The School Day

If your child is unable to attend Black Country Wheels School it is important that you contact the School before 9.15am to report this and give the reason for the absence. Any doctor/dentist/hospital appointment cards or correspondence should be sent in to Black Country Wheels School to support an absence.

All students should bring with them a writing pen, pencil, eraser and small ruler. These items are essential for students to participate in their lessons. We ask for your support in ensuring your son/daughter attends with these items each day.

We ask that our students wear appropriate clothing for a college environment and avoid wearing clothing that they consider ‘precious’.

It is important that all students follow the School protocols regarding  any digital or electronic devices that they may bring with them. Full details may be found in our School Policies available on on this website.
