Uniform Information

As we come to the end of the spring term and fast approach the summer term it is an opportune moment to revisit our uniform expectations.  The vast majority of our students wear the correct uniform all of the time, with pride and always look smart and ready to learn.  The school uniform rules shown below must be followed at all times and the school reserves the right to send anyone home who does not follow these expectations in their entirety.

It is important to note that during the summer term our young people can choose not to wear a school jumper but a white shirt, school tie and blazer must be worn at all times.  Also, please be aware that if girls choose to wear a skirt it must be knee length and if they choose to wear trousers, skinny style trousers are not permitted.

Unnatural colouring of the hair is not permitted (red, purple, blue etc).  Senior Tutors will decide on if a hairstyle is appropriate and meets the school policy.

Coats are not allowed to be worn in the building for safety reasons.  The blazer must be worn in the school building and removed during lessons with permission from the teacher.
