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.
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.

Outdoor clothing must be left in cloakrooms and must not be worn or taken into classrooms. Please wear your uniform neatly - shirts tucked in, top button done up, ties a standard length.
Jewellery: The only items of jewellery to be worn in school are plain gold or silver studs (one in each earlobe) and a watch. These items must be removed for PE and games. No other body piercings are allowed.
Extremes of hair style are not acceptable. Hair should be of a single, natural colour. You should contact the school if you are in any doubt as to whether you are likely to conflict with the school values. Students should be clean shaven.
Make-up, nail varnish or false nails are not permitted in school and will need to be removed.
Full uniform must be worn to and from school as well as in school.
