Uniform

We expect the support and co-operation of parents and carers in ensuring that their child complies with our very reasonable uniform code.

All Year 7-11 students are expected to wear school uniform.

 Our uniform comprises of:

  • Black trousers, or 
  • Black skirt 
  • White school shirt (including polo shirts)
  • Navy sweatshirt or jumper
  • Plain black shoes or trainers (no logos or coloured stripes/laces etc.)

We have our own initialed sweatshirts and polo shirts, which can be ordered through the school office (although this brand is not compulsory). You can download a uniform order form by clicking here: uniform

Our pupil Restorative Ambassadors are given red sweatshirts  and members of our Eco Committee are given green sweatshirts.

Students may be sent home if they are not wearing the correct uniform.

 

Sixth Form students are not expected to wear the school uniform.

 

 The following are NOT allowed in school:

  • Facial piercings
  • Exposed body piercings
  • Jewellery (stud earrings are allowed)
  • Oversized hair accessories 
  • Excessive make-up

School reserves the right to decide what is acceptable in terms of hair, jewellery etc on a case-by-case basis and if in any doubt please consult school before allowing your child to have a radical re-style!

 

Clothing for PE

The following are required for PE:

  • T-shirt, shorts & trainers (any colour)

PE classes take place both indoors and outdoors and therefore students should bring clothing as appropriate for weather conditions. Students are required to shower after PE and should bring a towel. On Wednesdays, at certain times of the year, Year 7 students will need to bring a swimming kit for swimming lessons.

 

Many problems with regard to school dress are caused by parents allowing their child to adopt a loose interpretation of school uniform for the sake of avoiding a confrontation. This is not helpful to school. Please help and support our dress code.

 

Lost property

Whilst school is in no way liable for any personal items lost or damaged during the day we do keep a lost property store and it helps if parents label sweatshirts, coats etc with their child's name.
