School Uniform

The school attaches great importance to appropriate dress. It helps to establish a feeling of community and to develop the personal presentation skills of students. Uniform is therefore not an option, it is a necessity. We expect all students to wear the uniform with pride when in school or when attending school functions. Parents are asked to ensure that clothing is clearly labelled.

Trousers/Skirt

Plain black trousers/skirt of a classical style, straight cut. Trousers should be tailored, the leg width must remain the same from hip to ankle. The width of the ankle must not be less than a 16-18cm diameter. Skinny/flared/stretch/Lycra/hipster/casual linen/leggings/appearance of leggings are not allowed. Trousers should not have accessory zips on, i.e. on the pocket area. Skirts should be worn at the knee, not above. High waisted/stretch/Lycra-pencil skirts are not allowed.

Shirt

Plain white shirt with traditional collar (no sports shirts).

School Jumper

Plain black V-neck with school logo. These are available from the school at a cost of £14.00 (30-34”) - £16.00 (36-44”). No other tops are permitted.

School Coat

No hoodies, tracksuit tops, jersey tops e.g. sweatshirts, denim jackets, leather jackets, fur coats, cardigan style jackets. Ideally, any coat your child wears to school should be waterproof.

School Bag

Bags should be black. They should be large enough to carry A4 folders, books and be appropriate for school. ‘Handbag -style’ bags are not permitted.

Tie

A school tie must be worn. Ties are available from the school at a cost of £3.50 (Year 11 ties available at a cost of £5.00).

Socks/Tights

Girls wearing skirts must wear plain white/black socks or plain black/flesh coloured tights.

Footwear

All students are expected to wear sensible black shoes with safe heels for movement around school. Boys must not wear trainer-style shoes. We strongly recommend low heels for girls. Trainers, boots, canvas shoes, sandals, pumps or ‘ballet’ style shoes are not allowed.

Earrings

Students may wear a small, single plain stud (not a ring) in each ear lobe. Ear ‘stretchers’ are not permitted and jewellery in any other part of the ear is also not permitted.

Jewellery

Jewellery should only be worn in the form of a single or plain stud in the bottom of each ear lobe and not in other parts of the ear. All other forms of jewelery, including tongue piercings, are not allowed. Watches, however, are permissable.

Hair Styles

These should be appropriate for school. Heads should not be shaved. Excessive hairstyles such as line designs, extreme shaping, styling, unnatural colouring or combination of colours are not allowed. We do not expect hair to be shaved to less than a grade 2.

Make-up

Make-up is not allowed in Years 7, 8 and 9. It should only be worn discreetly in Years 10 and 11 and is seen as a priviledge for the older students. False nails and nail polish should not be worn.

Denim

Denim and ‘jeans type’ clothing should not be worn. Denim jackets or coats are not allowed.

Protective Clothing

Please provide your child with an apron or overall for use in art studios and workshops.
