Uniform

Uniform policy

School uniform is compulsory
for all pupils

School uniform is to put everyone on an equal footing. It needs to be low cost, comfortable, easy to wash, suitable for work and conform to health and safety rules and to create a sense of belonging to the school community. We don’t allow designer clothes, designer hairstyles such as tramlines, jewellery and make-up.

We also don’t believe children should be allowed to challenge us on such matters. Pupils are expected to wear black shoes and ensure that hairstyles and colours comply with our requirements – hair should be in a natural shade; please note that colours such as pink, bright red or purple are not permitted.

  • Socks
