Uniform

Our uniform policy is agreed with parents, governors and the Student Council. As a School, we believe that uniform promotes a sense of pride and belonging.

All students are to wear uniform throughout the day from when they leave home to when they return. Students will also normally be expected to wear their uniform on any day trips unless indicated otherwise by the Headteacher.

Uniform is not a fashion item. It is designed to be both formal and comfortable. If there are any concerns about this please contact the School.

The overall impression given by the School uniform should be that of a well-groomed individual who takes pride in their appearance.

In the case of extreme weather, the Headteacher has the discretion to relax the uniform policy. This will be communicated to students as they arrive at the School. Students should assume that, unless directed otherwise, they should wear their usual uniform each day.

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS

Hair: Hair should be well-groomed and hairstyles should be conventional and of a natural colour. A cut shorter than a grade 3 is unlikely to be acceptable.

Hats: Hats are allowed only in extreme weather conditions – teachers will give permission to students to wear them.

Jewellery: Jewellery should be discreet and safe, no large earrings – just one stud pair. No spacers, bar or dangling earrings. A single ring and bracelet is permissible.

Makeup: Makeup should be very subtle – no coloured nail varnish or acrylic nails.

Piercing: A nose stud is permitted if it is discreet. No other visible piercings are permitted. They will have to be removed.
