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.

Desirable: Protractor, compass, glue stick.

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.
