Uniform

UNIFORM GIRL.jpgUNIFORM BOY.jpgOur uniform is sensible, practical and smart and we expect that students will wear it with pride. Students can expect to be challenged where they fall short of our high expectations. They are ambassadors for themselves and for our school when they are out in the community. The 'stay smart' message benefits us all. We have high standards and expect all students to meet these in terms of dress as well as in all other aspects of school life. 

Please support us in this, particularly with regard to:

  • Jewellery:  only one pair of small stud earrings is permitted.Earrings must be worn one in each ear lobe.Rings, bracelets and neck chains, or any form of facial piercing, are not allowed.
  • Girls’ trousers must be grey and of a tailored, sensible style.  Hipsters or flares are not acceptable, neither are trousers that are overlong.They should not sit more than 4cm below the waist.Trousers should be bought from one of our recognised suppliers, or students risk not meeting our uniform standards.
  • Girls’ skirts must not be too short or rolled up at the waist. They must sit no more than 6cms above the knee.The school operates a skirt ‘licence’.Girls will receive up to 2 after school detentions and should she choose to defy the rule for a third time then her licence to wear a skirt will be revoked and she will have to wear trousers for the rest of the school year.
  • All shirts must be tucked into skirts or trousers. Girls’ short, fitted styles are not permitted.
  • Ties must be worn properly, showing the crest below the knot with the top shirt button done up.
  • Hair styles must not be extreme or have shaved lines; hair colour must be ‘natural’, not highly coloured or streaked.
  • Shoes must be black leather and sensible.  Trainers are not acceptable.Students coming into school without the correct footwear will be given school pumps to wear.

Students can expect to be challenged where they fall short of our high expectations.  They are ambassadors for themselves and for our school when they are out in the community.The ‘Get Smart’ message benefits us all. Students can be sent to Isolation or sent home for repeated uniform offences – and it is very easy to avoid the challenge!Like all our expectations, it is about choice and consequence. Similarly with PE kit: students must organise themselves to bring kit to school, and will have to borrow some if they forget.Repeated failure to bring kit can also lead to sanctions and contact with home.
