General guidance

All items of clothing should be clearly marked with the pupil's name.

Shoes (not boots) must be black leather (not suede) and clean with a low wide flat heel no more than 5cms high. Shirt top buttons and ties (if appropriate) are to be done up and shirts tucked in at all times. Pullovers must be good condition without frayed cuffs.

Hairstyles should not draw attention to the pupil. Styles must look natural and should not be dyed or bleached nor should bleaching products be used. Hair gel may be used in small amounts to maintain styles. Hair must be off the face and would normally be off the collar for boys. Long hair must be tied back for the safety and hygiene of the pupil. Boys must be clean shaven and sideburns kept short.

Apart from watches, jewellery may not be worn to School. This is primarily for the safety of the child in PE lessons, but also because loss or damage can cause distress. Girls only may wear one pair of small discreet stud earrings in the earlobe (one in each ear only). Boys must not wear earrings.
