It has 17 essential items it says it cannot afford, including toilet paper, sticky tape, Blu Tack, felt tip pens and textbooks.
The 420-pupil school admitted it may not be able to operate after the next two years.

Catherine del Campo, whose ten-year-old daughter attends the school, said: “I was shaken and nearly in tears. This is really desperate – the fact they are asking for office supplies and toilet paper.

The school, which is the constituency Theresa May has represented for 21 years, says it continues to evacuate its finances.
It recently lost a £70,000 grant.
