Uniform

While in school and outside in the community all students must wear school uniform in the acceptable way, which promotes the school positively to our visitors and the wider community.

We are proud of our students and we believe that our uniform has helped to improve and expand academic excellence in the following ways:

  • Instilling students with discipline.
  • Helping parents and students resist peer pressure.
  • Helping students concentrate on their school work because they are dressed for learning.
  • Encouraging an improvement in student behaviour through a greater sense of school unity and identity.

We therefore expect all students to wear their uniform with pride, whether they are in school or outside in the community as they travel to and from school. In short, they should be ‘dressed for learning’ as they are representative of our school community.

Our students, therefore, whether they are in school or outside in the community, must wear school uniform in the acceptable way

  • Shirts should be tucked into skirt or trousers at all times.
  • The stripes and badge on the tie should be worn below the tie knot.
  • The blazer is a compulsory item and should be worn at all times.
  • The V-neck jumper is optional and may be worn during cold weather beneath the blazer.
    Note: Only the school shirt and jumper may be worn beneath the blazer
  • Sensible black shoes without markings or brand names. Shoes should be full and cover the whole foot with a sturdy sole for health and safety reasons.
  • Brown shoes, trainers, ankle boots, ‘slipper shoes’ (with no backs) are NOT allowed.
  • Outdoor coats should be navy blue or black, without brand names.
  • Hat/hoods or hooded-tops and leisurewear are not permitted. Such items are not outdoor coats and should not be worn.
  • Nail polish, acrylic and false nails are not permitted.
  • Fashion scarves and accessories are not part of our school uniform.
