It is the Governors’ policy that the full school uniform, as set out below, must be worn by all students in Years 7-11, and this includes travelling to and from school. We look for the total co-operation from parents and their children in this matter. As far as costs are concerned, school uniform will be found perhaps less expensive than other items of fashion, which students would otherwise expect parents to buy. Only school uniform should be worn inside school buildings. No hoodies are allowed on the premises.

Outdoor coats should be practical, warm and waterproof. They are not to be worn in classrooms during lessons. They should not have inappropriate logos on them. No denim, leather jackets or hoodies (including those with a full zip) are allowed on the premises. If a student is not in the correct uniform, a written note from his/her parent should be produced asking the School for exemption for a specific time. Year 11 can wear plain coloured shirts at the discretion of the Head of House.
