Uniform checks

Uniform checks will be carried out by tutors, class teachers and senior staff. Parents of any student in violation of the uniform rules will be written to with an expectation that the uniform will be corrected. Failure to comply will result in the student working separately from others until the situation is resolved.

Hair and make-up

Hair styles should not be extreme. This would include shaved hair below a grade two or hair dyed to a non-conventional colour.

Make up should be discreet and subtle. When a member of staff judges that make up is not discreet, students will be asked to remove it. Nail varnish should not be worn to school.

Jewellery

Students are permitted to wear discreet jewellery. Specifically, this means that students may wear 1 pair of stud earrings (with one being worn in each ear).
No other piercings are acceptable and students will be required to remove any other piercings. Bracelets and neck chains are also not permitted and students would also be required to remove them.
Ear stretchers, facial piercings or body piercings are not allowed and students will be required to remove them.

Trousers and skirts

Trousers must be tailored (not jeans style), plain black and not heavy cotton, chino or denim material. Trousers must not be skinny fitting and must cover the ankle. Girl’s trousers must be tailored or boot-cut style.

Skirts must be school regulation style (Banner Henley Black Skirt) e.g. with the double pleated front and knee length. We do not expect students to wear multiple pleated or excessively short skirts.

Shoes

School shoes should be : Black and leather (or leather like) traditional school shoes. They should not have noticeable branding. Trainer like shoes or boots or heels are not accepted. Please be aware that what shops define as ‘school shoes’ may not be acceptable. If in any doubt please consult with the school before making your purchase to avoid being asked to replace them.”
