School Uniform

We expect students to come to school looking tidy and presentable.  Jewellery is restricted to a watch, a single flat ring worn on the finger and one pair of small plain stud earrings worn in separate ear lobes.  We reserve the right to confiscate or insist that students remove any item which contravenes these guidelines or which is a potential safety hazard.  Hair accessories should be plain black, navy or white and not excessive.  Religious headwear must be plain black, navy or white. Personal stereos must not be worn, nor should mobile phones be switched on or visible inside the building. Excessive makeup, false nails and nail varnish are not allowed. Hairstyles must not be extreme, avant-garde or an unnatural colour.  We reserve the right to determine what is a reasonable style or colour of hair and to insist that students with inappropriate hairstyles have them restyled or coloured, wear a suitable covering or remain in isolation until their hair is acceptable.  Hats, scarves, T-shirts, jeans, sportswear, boots or trainers of any colour must not be worn in school.
