Please note: It is not possible to list all the combinations of hairstyles and clothing fads or fashions that may contravene our uniform requirements. It is at the Heads of House discretion to take action regarding fashion trend or hairstyle we feel is not acceptable. In order to prevent difficulty, and possible further expense, please ask for confirmation before buying shoes or clothing that you suspect may fall outside our uniform agreements.

Our school policy is: if a student arrives at school with the wrong clothing (including trainers), they will be isolated in the first instance. Parents and carers will be requested to bring the correct uniform into school. Alternatively, students may be sent home to change with parental permission. In this event, the absence will be recorded as unauthorised and attendance action may be taken (please see the Attendance Policy).
