Jewellery

The wearing of any jewellery is discouraged and there are strong restrictions on what is permitted in the school.  Jewellery can be dangerous in some lessons; or it can be lost or damaged.  We therefore allow only the following:

  • If a student has pierced ears then a small pair of studs can be worn (one stud per ear maximum).

Other forms of jewellery (e.g. rings, necklaces, bracelets, nose stud/rings, tongue studs, lip studs or rings, eyebrow studs or rings) are not allowed.

Students who decide to have facial piercing carried out during term time will be expected to remove the stud/ring etc.  Plasters covering such items will not be permitted as an alternative. Students who do not follow these rules can expect to be removed to work with a member of staff until the item is removed.

During some lessons students will be required to take off even permitted jewellery.  It is the student's responsibility to look after it.

Hairstyles

Hairstyles should be moderate and appropriate for school.  Extremes of fashion should therefore be avoided please.  Extreme, bold and bright dyed hair colours are not acceptable, or very short hair such as less than a grade 2.  Lines and patterns cut into hair are also not acceptable.

Nail Polish and False/Acrylic Nails

Nail polish and false nails/acrylics are not permitted.  Students who decide to paint their nails and apply acrylic/false nails during term will be expected to remove the polish or the acrylic/false nails.

Blazers

Blazers are only available from the school’s suppliers. Blazers must always be worn to school (i.e. not left at home or carried in school bags).

Blazers should be worn in lessons, assemblies, and registration time, unless the teacher gives permission for them to be removed (e.g. for practical lessons or when it is hot).

Topcoats should never be worn in lessons, assemblies or registration time.  If a topcoat is needed as well, then this can be worn over the blazer.  A topcoat must not be worn instead of a blazer.  Non-uniform jackets, sweatshirts, non-uniform jumpers, cardigans or hoodies etc must not be worn.

Topcoats

The following topcoats and garmets are not acceptable:  denim jackets, leather studded jackets, jackets with an offensive badge, logos, designs and slogans, hoodies and sweatshirts, non-uniform jumpers, cardigans, large T-shirt etc.  If a T-shirt is worn under the white school shirt, please ensure it is not visible.

Trainers

Trainers should only be worn during PE lessons, or when participating in a physical sport at break or lunchtime.  Non uniform shoes will only be accepted for medical conditions.

Badges

No badges should be worn apart from the school badges for achievements such as student leadership, school council representative.

Marking Uniform

All items must be clearly marked with the student’s name. This will help to prevent items becoming lost and will enable mislaid articles to be returned.  A marker pen can be used for this and is as good as a sewn in or ironed on label.
