The school has adopted a uniform as an outward demonstration of the high standards of personal behaviour and commitment we demand of everyone. It is expected that all pupils will wear it with pride and behave in such a way as to bring honour to the school whilst in uniform.
All garments and footwear must be plain. The school ID badge must be carried at all times and must not be defaced in any way. No other badges must be worn in school except marks of achievement.
The outer coat or anorak, and scarf may be any colour, but without slogans or pictures*. Any maker’s motif should be small enough to be covered by the equivalent of a credit card.
Denim coats and tracksuit tops are not permitted
Pupils must never wear an outer coat instead of blazer/pullover.
Whilst we have no desire to curb individuality, we do not expect to see extremes* of hairstyle in school. Hair spray/gel has proved to be dangerous when working in laboratories and should not be worn in school.
A wrist watch will be allowed. Bracelets, earrings, rings and necklaces constitute a safety hazard and are not allowed.
Make-up which (must be lightly applied*) is permitted only from Year 11.
