As part of our school ethos a high standard of personal appearance is expected of all students.
Students should be in full uniform on the way to and from school and anyone arriving at school in non-uniform clothing may expect to be issued with an after-school detention, may be sent home to change or may be internally excluded.
Non-uniform items may be confiscated for parental collection at the end of term and students will be issued with detentions.
WE ARE A STRICT UNIFORM SCHOOL. When buying items of clothing or shoes please be conscious of the school uniform code.
STUDENTS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO WEAR NON-UNIFORM ITEMS EVEN IF THEY HAVE JUST BEEN PURCHASED.
