Unacceptable Uniform

Skirts rolled over on the waistband

Trousers no hipsters, jean-style, frayed, clingy, lycra decorated or casual trousers

Jumpers only school jumpers are permitted, no hoodies or non-school jumpers.  School jumpers can only be worn under the blazer, not instead of the blazer

Tights no patterned or ripped tights

Shoes Casual shoes/trainers of any kind are unacceptable – including sandals or sling backs.  Boots, shoes with logos, symbols, flashes of colour or brand names are not acceptable

Students do not have to wear their school blazer in the second half of the Summer term each academic year.  However, they are not allowed to wear a replacement garment as the idea is to help students to stay cool in the warmer weather.  Students may continue to wear their blazer in the second half of the Summer term if they so wish.

Students whose uniform does not match requirements may not be allowed to access normal lessons or free time.  No variations from, or adaptations or additions to this dress list are allowed.  Persistent, open defiance of the uniform regulations will be deemed a serious breach of school discipline.
