School Uniform

UNIFORM

Given the current circumstances, we would ask that students do not carry unnecessary items to school. Please limit contents to:
• Pencil case
• Healthy snack/lunch
• 2 face masks per day

Jewellery and make-up

Students are permitted to wear a simple pair of stud earrings and a watch to school. Please note the school is not responsible for any loss or damage to such items.
Students are not permitted to wear make-up or nail polish.

There is an expectation that all students should arrive at school everyday, wearing the correct uniform. Class teachers and form tutors will be responsible for checking the students’ uniform each morning and will contact parents if incorrect or inappropriate items of clothing are worn to school.
