School Trousers   

 

 

Black plain knee length skirts for girls or tailored trousers must be worn. Students cannot wear trousers that are too tight, that are leggings style, have zips or other fashion accessories or that are too short. Some of our students have taken to wearing trousers that are leggings, are skinny trousers, are lycra based, do not reach to the shoe or hug the leg all the way down to the ankle; these are not permitted.

Outdoor Coats:

Plain anoraks or coats are needed during colder weather. Expensive items such as leather jackets are not appropriate school wear. Denim is not suitable for school wear.  

Make-up and Jewellery

Make-up is not appropriate for school wear. This includes coloured nail varnish and false nails. If a student comes to school with unsuitable nails then the school may place that student in isolation until resolved.

Students should have no facial piercings and only one plain stud in each ear. If students are unable to remove them then they will be placed in isolation.

Hair:

We encourage neat, traditional styles in the natural colour and consider many extremes to be unsuitable for school. Grade 2 is the shortest cut that we would find acceptable. If a student comes to school with an unsuitable hair style or colour then the school may place that student in isolation until the hair is suitable for school.

School Bag:

Every student should have a school bag in which books and equipment can be carried. Small, clutch hand bags are not suitable for school use.
