Uniform & Appearance

Purchase of Uniform:

General items of school uniform such as blazers, trousers, shirts and jumpers are obtainable from most outfitters or department stores. For your convenience representatives of uniform suppliers and the Parents Association will be present at each of the New Parents’ Evenings to display and sell school uniform.

Ties and badges are available for purchase only through school and will be available on Parents’ Evenings. The school badge was redesigned a while ago to include House colours; you should avoid purchasing outdated stock from elsewhere.

For reasons of safety and security we do not allow the wearing of rings, earrings or other items of jewellery. We do not allow piercings of any sort.


Hairstyles are an issue that sometimes bring us into conflict with parents. We do not allow extreme styling of any kind and ask that hair is not dyed, tinted or permed, is not worn excessively long or short, nor has steps cut into it. If a pupil does have ‘long hair’ it must be tied back. Fashions change and so do the pressures they bring. We look to parents to support our efforts in these matters but in the end the Headteacher will be the final arbiter.
