At the beginning of Form 6 each child will be given a set of maps and they will need to have an A4 folder with integral plastic pockets to keep the maps safe for the duration of their time at the school. Included with the maps is a blank map of each continent that should be copied to allow the children maps to work on as they prepare for tests.
