In our Code of Practice, which has been signed by every student and their parents/carers, it states the following:

Uniform: School uniform must be worn at all times (this includes the journey to and from school). Students will not be allowed entry into the School building without full uniform, unless they have previously obtained written permission from the Principal (eg. on faith or medical grounds). Chewing gum is not permitted.

Please make sure that when your son/daughter comes to school in September, he/she is wearing the correct full uniform, and they should also have the correct kit for PE/Games. Every student needs to be fully equipped with pens, pencils and a bag suitable for carrying textbooks.

Please note that:

  • Hooded sweatshirts and baseball caps are not allowed
  • Skin tight trousers and jeans are not permitted
  • Headscarves worn by girls for religious reasons must be black or navy blue – coloured or patterned headscarves are not acceptable

Students who arrive at school without the correct full uniform will serve a same day detention.  In extreme cases, the school reserves the right to take further reasonable action.
