Uniform

The school takes pride in the appearance and conduct of its pupils. The school’s reputation in this area is of importance to individual pupils both during school life and later when seeking employment. Therefore:

  • School uniform is to be worn by all pupils and all adults are asked to ensure that the pupils comply with the accepted uniform standards
  • The headteacher reserves the right to prohibit unsuitable fashion/styles in dress and personal appearance which is contrary to the reasonable policy summarised in this document
