P.E. Kit

No aerosol deodorants are allowed in school and students who are not participating in P.E. lessons should still bring their full P.E. kit into school as they may be asked to umpire/referee.

Outdoor Clothing

A suitable dark coloured outdoor coat should be worn over the blazer in poor weather conditions. Coats should be placed in a locker on entering the school building.
Multi-coloured tops, sweatshirts, hoodies and expensive fashion coats are not appropriate and are not allowed in any part of the school grounds. Headgear of any type is not allowed in school.

Jewellery

Wrist bands and jewellery are not allowed. Badges on blazers must be school related. Finger rings are not allowed in school for safety reasons. In the interest of safety one pair of small plain ear studs may be worn in the lobe only of the ear. No other piercings are allowed on any part of the body.

Make-up, nail varnish, false nails and false eye lashes are not considered appropriate for school and will not be allowed.

Haircuts & Accessories

Yes ....

  • Natural hair colour 
  • Suitable length - number 2 & above
  • Black or white hair bobbles or bands
  • Longer hair tied back for technology areas

No ....

  • No extreme haircuts or styles such as less than a number 2, noticeable use of gel, weaves and braids, tram lines/designs etc.
  • No noticeable deviation away from natural hair colour such as bright blond, black, colours such as red, pink etc.
  • No coloured hair bobbles or bands

Summary

A high standard of personal appearance is expected. Pupils’ hair, if long, should be tied back for practical subjects. All pupils’ hair should be groomed and not cut too short. As a guide, hair should be cut no shorter than a number 2. Extremes of hair fashion are not permitted, this includes dying unnatural colours, part shaving, hair braiding and extensions. No pattern or tram lines are allowed. 

Whilst it is difficult to stipulate exactly what is and what isn’t allowed, the overall aim is to make sure that pupils look smart and presentable for school. Pupils are expected to be either clean-shaven or, if they maintain facial hair, it should be kept neat and tidy. Body jewellery is not allowed.

If you are unsure of any uniform requirements please contact school for clarification before making your purchases. If any disputes arise, the headteacher will make the final decision.
