Uniform

We are a school with high expectations and this is reflected in our uniform policy. Uniform protects students from the pressure on unachievable beauty ideals and disparities of parental wealth.

Challenge to uniform expectations often strongly correlates to disengagement with learning. For all these reasons we are very strict as consistency is the fairest way to manage any uniform policy. It is essential that parents/carers support us in this and exercise careful judgement in matters of uniform and that you check any potential purchases which might prove to be controversial with us before you make them. We always inform parents/carers in writing of any changes, actual or proposed, to our uniform.

School Bag

Students in the lower school (Year 7 to Year 9) are required to use a rucksack rather than handbag. This is to provide good back health and reduce corridor congestion. There will be no 'school issue' rucksack but we ask that it is practical and sturdy. Rucksacks should be non-designer brand (no Gucci etc). Proper camping rucksacks such as Northface etc. are durable and will last for 5 years.

NB: Students starting in Year 7 will use a rucksack until end of Year 11.

 

Jewellery and Make-up/Hair

The only items of jewellery permitted are a watch (named) and a small pair of plain stud earrings for pierced ears, worn one in each lobe. No other facial piercings are permitted. Jewellery and make-up are not allowed. Students who are incorrectly attired may be withdrawn from lessons or be required to wear some of our uniform stock.

Unnatural hair colours, nail varnish/false nails are not permitted. Hair bands should be discreet – preferably black or navy.

Apple watches cannot be used in examinations.

 

Water Bottle

We strongly discourage the use of disposable plastic. There are water fountains and we would encourage the use of reusable water bottles. This also reduces the use of recyclable cups provided by Independent Catering.
