Each student in Years 7-11 is required to have their own locker in which they should safely store their belongings. In Sixth Form lockers are laptop sized and are not mandatory. Students should keep their locker key on a named key ring and keep a spare locker key at home.
Lockers at DCGS are outsourced to ILS who charge an annual rent, which will also cover full service and maintenance costs. Rental is from September through to July (when all bookings terminate). There are no discounts for lockers booked late in the year.
For Years 7-11 lockers around the school site are grouped by House. For Sixth Form they are by Year group. Lockers can be booked online via www.ilsschools.co.uk. All rentals are subject to ILS' terms and conditions which are available during the booking process.
When booking a locker we recommend that you a order a spare key, to be kept at home. If ordered at the time of booking the cost is less than keys ordered at other times of the year due to postage costs. Keys ordered will be delivered to your home address from ILS by 31 August.For any further information please see the Frequently Asked Questions.
