Uniform and Appearance
The school expects students to present themselves as they would in a professional, ‘uniformed’ organisation. Top buttons must be done up, with the tie covering the top button. Shirts must be tucked in, and personal stereo/CD headphones must not be visible. Hair must be clean and well groomed, with no extremes of length, style or colour. Students must be clean-shaven, with no beards or moustaches.
All students must wear a blazer with a badge, a white formal shirt, school tie, black shoes (not suede) and dark grey or black trousers (not jeans or cords).
Students may wear a plain grey V-neck jumper. Sixth Formers may wear a plain grey or plain black cardigan instead of a V-neck jumper, provided the cardigan remains buttoned up and is worn under the blazer. No jewellery may be worn.
Students cannot wear piercings, hoodies, trainers, overcoat/jacket/fleece/jumper or cardigan in lieu of blazer.
Students may not smoke, neither in school nor on the way to or from school or whilst on a school activity.
