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'; this includes no 'ankle grazers'. 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. Pinstripe is the preferred option for Years 7 to 11.

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 to school. We require all pupils to wear flat black leather / leather-look shoes and so no trainers or canvas shoes are allowed.
