School Uniform Information

Students are expected to wear  FULL school uniform at all times with no exceptions, this includes on their journey to and from school. If your daughter doesn’t have correct uniform on, she will be sent home. If there is a legitimate reason that she does not have her full uniform, please contact the school via phone or provide her with a note to explain what she doesn’t have, why she doesn’t have it and when she will be provided with the item(s). A decision will then be made on whether she can stay in school that day. She will need to be prepared to borrow school shoes from us for a day.

Hoodies, sports tops/jumpers, trainers and hats are not permitted at any time and will be confiscated.

Please ensure that ALL items are labelled with your daughter’s name.

We do not allow students to wear make-up, false nails or nail varnish. No jewellery is allowed in school at all except a wristwatch (not a smart watch). This includes all forms of earrings. This is for health and safety reasons and also to prevent loss. If a student arrives at school wearing them, they will be told to remove them or be sent home.

(Please do not allow your daughter to have a new piercing during the school year as there is not sufficient time for it to heal and we will ask you to remove it; any new piercings should be done at the start of the Summer holiday).
