Uniform and Kit is compulsory and should be clearly marked with the pupil's name!

We try to encourage in our pupils a sense of pride in belonging to the school and a sense of confidence coming from a smart appearance suitable for all school occasions. Accordingly the school has a simple, inexpensive but strict uniform policy. Any pupil not in full school uniform or whose appearance does not meet our standards may be sent home. If there is a genuine emergency, a note should be sent to the appropriate head of house.

Full uniform is to be worn on all school occasions unless permission is given to the contrary. It should be worn to and from school.

We have tried to be specific whilst avoiding fine detail but if you are unsure about a uniform issue please check with us before purchase or use for school.

Sixth Form Uniform Policy

We expect all our students to have very high professional standards and uniform is no exception to this. Sixth Form is about preparing our students for the world of work and so it is important that all students have high standards of personal appearance. Our uniform policy has been put together with our Sixth Form Leadership team. For this academic year we have one change to the uniform which is highlighted in bold print.

All Pupils

Technology:
All pupils must have a cotton apron, not plastic or nylon, for safety reasons.

Outdoor Coats:
The provision of a sensible outdoor coat is essential for the British weather. These should be large enough to be worn over a blazer, waterproof and warm. Any colour is suitable but lighter colours are safer on darker days.

Please buy as plain as possible without slogans or logos. Such coats often prove attractive to thieves.

Pupils will not be allowed to carry coats with them. Coats should be capable of folding into a school bag otherwise they will need to be kept in the cloakroom.

School Bags:
School bags must be large enough to carry everything required for the school day. Students must have a back pack. E.g. It should be robust and large enough to hold an A4 folder and large text books without damage.

Equipment:
Pupils will need a pen, pencil, a ruler and coloured pencils in a pencil case.

Pupils should have a small pocket dictionary with them to help with their spellings every lesson.

All pupils need a calculator and they must have it with them at all times. An expensive calculator is not required.

Appearance

It is difficult to give a definitive list of what might be unacceptable in terms of appearance. Young people are influenced by fashion as we all are to a degree and this changes regularly. A clear uniform policy helps here, of course. In general we would make judgements about the acceptability of dress and appearance based largely upon what might be considered acceptable in a conservative workplace serving the public, a bank for example. No extremes of appearance are acceptable. This includes hair styles as well as dress and the school reserves the right to judge extremes of dress and appearance.

Make-Up (Including fake tan and fake nails):
Is not allowed.

Jewellery:
Is not allowed, except for a watch and one pair of small studs, one per ear, for girls with pierced ears. Studs, worn at pupils own risk, may be worn only in the lobes of the ears and need to be removed for P.E and Games. Boys are not allowed to wear ear rings.

Sixth-Formers:
Are allowed one ring and necklace only.

Hair:

We have insisted on tidy hair without extremes of style throughout changing styles and fashions. We insist therefore that there are no wedges or steps and that hair is one natural colour.

Girls with long hair should have it kept tidily in place, off the face at all times with clip, slide, or band, but not coloured beads or with extensive braiding. It will need to be fully tied back for all practical lessons.

Boys' hair should not be below the collar; neither should it be very short or shaven. Boys with fairer hair need to be particularly careful in this respect.

Pupils who have unacceptable hairstyles will be withdrawn from class.

Hair spray and hair gel are not allowed for reasons of safety. All such dressings render hair more flammable and represent an avoidable risk in the workshops, laboratories and Home Economics rooms.

Care of Belongings:

We have a good record as far as security of valuables are concerned but these are never totally safe in a mixed community of over 1000 people. For that reason expensive or treasured items should not be brought to school.

All property should be insured against loss outside the home. No responsibility can be accepted by the school.

We have a number of rules and guidelines to assist in securing property. These are made to help pupils avoid upset. Property may at times be confiscated. Sometimes we will insist that it is collected by parents by appointment.
