Further Guidance

Trousers

Plain, classic school- style trousers. These should be straight legged and not a tight, 'bootleg', 'drainpipe' or 'jeans' style nor should they be 'low-rise'. There should be no large belts or buckles. Trousers should not be made out of a denim fabric or leather.

Skirts

Skirts should not be tight, slit, or made of stretch fabric. The hem of the skirt should be no more than 5cm above the knee.

Jumpers/Sweatshirts

Plain navy-blue (black for sixth form) V-neck, with school badge. No cardigans allowed. The school badge may be purchased separately from the school office.

Jewellery

On health and safety grounds we do not allow pupils to wear any jewellery in our school. The exception to this rule is a wrist watch. We ask the pupils children to remove these objects during PE and games, to prevent them from causing injury. If pupils have piercings over the Summer holidays, they will have to remove these before returning to school in September.

Make-up

No make-up should be worn to school and this includes nail varnish and false nails etc.

Extreme Haircuts and Colours

The school does not permit children to have 'extreme' haircuts and unnatural hair colours that could serve as a distraction to other pupils. Only basic hair accessories to be worn i.e. discrete black or navy scrunchies, bobbles or headbands.

Outwear

No denim jackets, hoodies, heavily logo'd tops or base ball caps. A suitable plain, dark coloured coat may be worn as outerwear to and from school.

Footwear

The school wants all children to grow into healthy adults. We believe that it is dangerous for pupils to wear shoes that have platform soles or high heels, so we do not allow pupils to wear such shoes in our school. Neither do we allow pupils to wear trainers to school; this is because we think that this footwear is appropriate for sport or for leisurewear, but is not in keeping with the smart appearance of a school uniform. We require all pupils to wear shoes as stated in the uniform list.

Mobile phones should not be used in school. In all cases of dispute or interpretation of the school’s rules the decision of the Headteacher will be final.
