Uniform, Lost Property and School Shop


At The British Schools everyone is encouraged to take pride in their personal appearance.  Wearing the correct uniform in a smart and presentable way, with neatly groomed hair – short hair for boys and long hair tied back for girls - is considered to encourage enthusiastic and professional, attitudes and support positive behaviour. The School uniform also gives students a sense of belonging, sets an appropriate tone and creates an identity for the School in the community.

Lost Property

Lost Property is located opposite the First Aid Room/Infirmary on the ground floor of the East Wing in Junior. 

Things that get misplaced are collected by School staff and taken to Lost Property where lost items can be found. Students can go to Lost Property in the morning breaks to check if their misplaced items are there. 

Parents can come on Fridays from 8:15am to 8:45am (access via the Corner Gate, Máximo Tajes 6441) to check for their children´s lost items.

Once an item is entered into Lost Property, it is classified and an inventory is created and shared with Junior and Senior coordinators. A list is printed and shared outside of the Lost Property office and parents are notified weekly by an automatic email with a detail of their child's items. That list is also shared with every Form Teacher and Head of Year. 

If 30 days after the date that the item has been found, it has not been collected, it will be donated to the organisations the School works with.

Packs, bottles or tuppers are not entered into the Lost Property system and are discarded once the week is over. All of the aforementioned items are in the shelves outside of Lost Property and can be retrieved at any time.

Please help reduce the amount of lost property by making sure that all items of uniform and personal belongings are clearly labelled with both surnames.
