The Scout Troop meets every Wednesday during term time. Scouts should arrive between 7:00pm and 7:15pm, and not before as we cannot offer any supervision then. Please enter by the Wathen Hall entrance and wait behind the glass doors until a leader is present. Scouts must place their kit neatly on the balcony and then come down to the main hall.

Scouts must always arrive in complete uniform. This means the correct shirt, trousers and belt along with a clean scarf and an approved scout woggle. A small notebook and pen or pencil should also be kept in the front pocket of the shirt. A change of clothes should be brought to each meeting for games and it is best to avoid loose clothing or clothing with buttons as these are easily damaged.

Unless otherwise advised, Scouts should be collected between 8:45pm and 9:00pm. Please bear in mind that the school is in a residential area and park with consideration to the residents.

Camps will start and finish outside the Middle School unless otherwise instructed. Normal times will be 8:00pm Friday to 5:00pm Sunday. Most camps will allow for 1 hour of homework time. Full uniform will be worn at the start of all camps and activities unless specifically advised otherwise.

Your son will need his full uniform, which comprises the official Scout shirt, activity trousers, leather woggle and belt. These can be obtained from John Lewis or by mail order through Scout Shops. He should use the scarf he was provided with when he was a Cub, but will receive a new Scout handbook and a set of badges. Please label the entire uniform.
