Watches may be worn, so long as they are not a distraction to learning.






To promote high standards of dress, shoes should be black and of a formal leather or leather-look style. Casual canvas shoes, trainers, boots or open shoes/sandals are not acceptable.

Where alternative footwear is necessary to support a medical condition, it should be plain black and accompanied by a doctor’s certificate.



All hair at or below shoulder length (both boys and girls) must be tied back at all times in school, but especially during PE and games lessons.  School hair ties should be in appropriate colours and styles suitable to blend with school uniform (yellow/white bands).  Hair should be off the face, clipped back and not obscuring sight.

Pupils should not wear extreme hair fashions, which are designed to attract attention, including dyed or streaked hair, and styles such as spikes and images or lines cut into the hair.


Body Piercing

Body piercing should be kept to one simple stud earring in one or both ears.  New piercings should occur at the beginning of the summer holiday to give it time to heal as all items of jewellery must be removed for all PE and games lessons, including swimming. If your child is unable to remove their earrings themselves please do not send them to school wearing them.

The large diamond type studs are not allowed.  Any logo or emblem as part of the earring is unacceptable.


Tattoos and body piercings are not allowed.


Make up and coloured nail varnish are not allowed.


Pupils are expected to follow the same dress code with regard to hair and jewellery on non-uniform days, unless it is a themed event.
