All our students in Year 7 to 11 are expected to wear the approved school uniform. A high standard of work and behaviour is expected from all our students, and we believe these are helped by also having high standards of appearance.
All items of school uniform are worn conventionally, and we expect parents/carers to support our reasonable requirements. We operate uniform checks each morning to ensure our students uphold our high standards with regard to the dress code and to check on essential items for a successful school day. This includes checking our students have the correct uniform and that it is worn correctly. If the correct uniform isn’t being worn, students will be asked to change into school owned alternatives, or they may be sent home to change.
We expect students to maintain high standards of appearance at all times, and for older students to lead by example.
- Non-uniform coats, hoodies or footwear should be removed before students enter the building and stored in their locker.
We will provide you with a voucher to purchase the following items of school unform:
- Blazer with school logo
- School Tie
- PE Top with school logo
- PE T-Shirt school logo
- PE Jogger school logo
The School will have used items of uniform available on a continual basis, Heads of Year will advise on availability and process.
