Important Reminders

Hair – must be cut in an appropriate manner that is suitable to a formal educational and professional environment (it should not be extreme in colour or length changes and must not include tramlines or shaved areas of any kind).  Students in Key Stage 3 (KS3) should have their hair tied back at all times, whilst students in Key Stage 4 (KS4) need to tie their hair back in practical subjects due to health and safety requirements. 

Piercing – a pair of small plain stud earrings (one in each ear lobe) are the ONLY piercings permitted, no hoops or diamond studs. No other form of body piercing is acceptable. Please note: earrings need to be removed for all physical activity.

Watch – Students should all have a wrist watch to ensure they are on time to school and lessons. They must not rely on their mobile phone to tell the time as this will be confiscated if used during school hours.

Make Up – False nails of any description must not be worn, students wearing false nails will be asked to remove them immediately. Make must be discreet.

Shoes – Only black smart practical shoes are permitted. Do not be persuaded by shoe shops who advertise plain black trainers as school shoes or any footwear bearing a logo e.g. Nike or Timberlands. Shoes are essential to provide the protection required in practical areas. Boots or canvas shoes of any kind are not permitted.

Trousers – Must be plain black and formal in style. No leggings, denim-type or figure hugging trousers are permitted.

Skirts – Must be plain black or the school tartan and no shorter than one closed hand span above the knee. No elasticated or jersey material is permitted.
