Uniform Policy

As a school, we firmly believe that our school uniform at both Key Stage 3 and 4 plays a valuable role in contributing to our ethos and setting an appropriate tone which supports effective teaching and learning. Working with students, we have made a lot of progress towards achieving the consistent appearance of students in uniform across both key stages and we are keen to maintain this, therefore all students should wear the specified school uniform below with names clearly marked on each item.

Equipment for all years

Essential: Appropriate school bag, planner, pen, pencil, eraser, sharpener, ruler, scientific calculator, reading book. 

Desirable: Protractor, compass, glue stick.

  • There is a NO jewellery policy, except for a watch (no smart watches)
  • Body piercing and adornment of any form is NOT permitted – students will be required to remove the non-uniform item.
  • Minimal natural looking make up is allowed. NO eye make-up. NO coloured lipstick – NO fake tan
  • Only clear colourless nail polish may be worn. NO acrylic or false nails allowed. 
  • Caps and hats must not be worn
  • IPods/MP3s must not be brought into school.
  • Hair may be coloured in more than one matching natural shade / tone but NO creative block or contrasting colours. NO extreme styles e.g. tram lines (including eyebrows), Mohican, shaving (e.g. shaven and longer length hair worn together).  Hair accessories must be dark and discrete
  • Boys are expected to be clean shaven
  • Hooded tops must not be worn unless they have been purchased from school

What will happen if students choose not to follow all parts of the uniform regulations?

Consequences: If students do not comply with all parts of the uniform regulations, they will be given the chance to ‘get it right.’ Failing that they will be choosing to work in isolation, or if this non-compliance persists they are likely to be sent home.

In case of jewellery, caps, non-affiliated hooded tops, MP3 players etc. these will be confiscated, a communication sent home and the item(s) held in the main office until acknowledgement is received from your parent/ carer, before being returned. However, in the case of persistent confiscation of any item(s) your parent/ carer will be informed and asked to collect in person.

Students must accept responsibility for their own personal possessions and equipment whilst on the school site. Please avoid valuable items being brought into school.

The school will not be held responsible for any item of uniform or equipment lost or stolen in school.
