Uniform

School uniform and appearance

The uniform should be clean and in good repair. It should be worn smartly and conventionally. Students who, without good reason, fail to wear the school uniform correctly may be disciplined. If temporarily unable to wear full school uniform, students must provide a dated letter of explanation from a parent or guardian.

Boys uniform

Such letters will normally receive sympathetic consideration. This does not, however, negate the Headteacher’s or Deputy Head’s right to send a student home if he judges that the reason is unacceptable.
