Please note the following guidance below. You can also see the full uniform policy in the PUPILS section of the website, under Uniform.
Thank you in advance for your continued support.
Further Guidance
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 should not be tight, slit, or made of stretch fabric. The hem of the skirt should be no more than 5cm above the knee.

- No denim jackets, leather jackets, ’hoodies’, heavily logo’d tops, baseball caps or trainers are to be worn in school.
- Very short and shaved heads and dyed hair are not permitted. Gel and wax are not permitted for health and safety reasons.
- Jewellery and make up is not permitted. This includes nail varnish and false nails.

If your child is found to be in breach of any of these rules they risk being ’included’ (removed from lessons for the day) and/ or having items confiscated. Persistent disregard for these rules may lead to further, more severe sanctions.
We very much hope we have your continued support in this matter,
