School Uniform requirements
As well as giving a sense of belonging to the school, uniform is also important in helping to establish a good working atmosphere. Our uniform is chosen to be practical and affordable and we are reliant on the support of parents, in ensuring that all students are appropriately dressed for school.
Hair must be neat, tidy and of a style acceptable to the school, avoiding extremes. Students should avoid extremes of personal appearance. This includes hair colouring and haircuts.
Make-up, if worn, should be very light and discreet. Tattoos (permanent or semi-permanent) should not be visible. Coloured nail varnish and false nails are not allowed. No false eyelashes.
Excessive jewellery should not be worn. Up to two rings, one necklace, only two small earrings/studs per ear, and a watch. No other items must be visible.
Tongue piercings, facial jewellery or body piercings must never be worn. Any new piercings that require a “healing period” should only take place during school holidays, that are long enough to accommodate the process. All piercings (other than ears) must be removed and not simply covered with plasters during school time.
No jewellery can be worn during PE or other practical activities.
The Head teacher has the right to decide if any style or item of clothing, or hairstyle, is inappropriate for school.
