  • Long hair must be tied back for all pupils without elaborate hair decoration.
  • No extreme hairstyles (no stepped or sudden changes in length sides and back, no bullet creases or patterns shaved in).
  • Natural hair colours.

MAKE-UP

  • We are aware that, as pupils reach adolescence, it is not uncommon for them to feel self-conscious about their appearance. Therefore, in years 9-11 only, pupils may wear subtle, light touch make-up only, that would not be noticeable to the observer. 
  • The following are not permitted: fake tan; highlighter and bronzer; nail varnish and Shellac/acrylic nails; HD brows; false lashes.
  • The judgement as to whether the make-up is considered ‘subtle’ or not will be made by the staff and not the pupil. Any pupil who is judged to be wearing inappropriate make-up will be asked to remove it. Continual infringements of the policy may result in the pupil being asked to wear no make-up at all in the future.

JEWELLERY

  • The only jewellery permitted is a single stud earring in the ear. No other visible piercings are permitted.

What is Expected

  • It is expected that all items of uniform will be clearly marked with the pupil's name.
  • Valuables and Insurance - Neither the school nor the Local Authority has an insurance policy which will cover the loss of a child's personal property in the event of it being lost or stolen.
  • Parents should check their household insurance policy to see if it covers items of personal use outside the home.
