Uniform and EquipmentGirls (Year 7-11) | Further Information

We pride ourselves with high standards of dress in school and ask for the co-operation of pupils and parents in maintaining these. A high standard of dress impacts on the working ethos of the school and how the wider community views our pupils. See PE Department Expectations for information about PE Kit.

Further Information

Summer Uniform

At times of extreme heat students will be informed by the Head teacher when ties and blazers may be taken off in school. However, they must normally be worn on journeys to and from school and on school trips.

Jewellery

Students may wear a watch but no other jewellery is permitted due to health and safety issues and liability in case of loss. Therefore, if students wish to have any part of their body pierced they must arrange this at the beginning of the Summer holidays so that the wound has sufficient time to heal. Plasters may not be worn to cover body jewellery. If pupils disregard this they will be isolated from other pupils until they comply with the regulation.

Hairstyles and Attire

Baseball caps are not permitted in any circumstances.

Hairstyles should not be extreme. Parents should consult, in advance, with the Head of Year if they are unsure as to the suitability of a change of style. The school shall be the arbiter of the term 'extreme'.

Make-up

For Health and Safety reasons make-up and nail polish are not permitted. In exceptional circumstances light foundation will be permitted to disguise skin complaints.

Financial Support

In cases of financial hardship parents can appeal to the Headteacher/Governors for financial support. Such cases will be treated with due sensitivity and in confidence.

Special Consideration

Parents can apply in writing to the School governing body if they wish their child(ren) to wear different items for religious, cultural or health reasons.

Lockers

Lockers will be provided for students to store coats during the School Day.
