Guildlines for Parents and Students on School Uniform
This information is included in the Handbook issued to all parents of new intake students in the summer term before they start here. A further copy is sent to parents of years 9 and 10 to remind them of uniform guidelines for September. Please use this information to remind students and their parents of the correct school uniform when necessary.
All students in years 9, 10 and 11 are expected to wear correct school uniform at all times. Students attending this school benefit from its reputation, and we expect students in turn to help maintain that reputation by high standards of behaviour and appearance, both in school and in the local community. Parents whose children are allocated places here are expected to support the school policy on uniform.
Our uniform aims to promote individuality and inclusion in line with our ethos. Students have the flexibility to make a personalised choice within specific guidelines outlined below. We believe this will help to promote our school in a positive manner in the local community.
As you know, we have really high expectations of our students and their uniform, behaviour and appearance. We therefore fully appreciate your full support in ensuring your children are ready and prepared to learn during the school day.

Students are expected to bring P.E kit to every lesson regardless of illness or injury as they will undertake other appropriate roles within the lesson.
Students should wear minimal jewellery. Ears may be pierced but this should be restricted to a single pair of piercings fitted with stud type earrings. Other body piercings are not recommended and should be removed for any activity which may impact on the safety of the student.
Headscarves are permitted.
Students should be equipped and ready to learn at the start of the lesson, therefore outdoor coats should be removed when entering the classroom to provide a positive start to the lesson.
