School Uniform

School Uniform, including information relating to uniform logo changes, as well as when and where to purchase uniform.

We regard the wearing of school uniform as very important and seek the support of parents in maintaining our very high standards in this respect

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 we deem to be 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 in school until we consider their hair to be acceptable.  Hats, scarves, T-shirts, jeans, sportswear, boots or trainers of any colour must not be worn in school.

When and where to purchase uniform

Before the current Covid-19 crisis, it was our intention to make all items of uniform for new year 9 students available for purchase from school on the evenings of Wednesday 1st July and Thursday 2nd July (the Intake Evenings). However, these evenings along with the scheduled Intake Parents’ Evenings (Wednesday 8th July or Thursday 9th July) are under review. Details of how to purchase uniform can now be found on our website (News and Events) which includes information from our uniform supplier, Michael Sehgal & Sons Ltd.

The water resistant coat will continue to be ordered and collected from school.

Year 11 from September 2020

From September 2020, year 11 students may continue to wear uniform with our “old” logo, until such time as those particular items of uniform are no longer available from school stock.

When out of stock, you will need to purchase them (with the new logo), from our supplier, Michael Sehgal & Sons Ltd.

Water resistant coats (all students)

School will continue to stock and sell the water resistant coats. To year 11 students, any of these coats that we still have in stock with the current logo have been reduced from £37.50 to £20. When a particular size of the water resistnat coat with the current logo is no longer available, coats with the new logo can be purchased at full price from school.

Please note that students are required to wear a school coat (fleece or water resistant coat) to and from school following the October half term break up to the February half term break. Non-uniform items such as fleeces or hoodies cannot be worn under school coats or over school sweatshirts.
