Other Uniform Expectations:
Shoes: All students must wear plain black flat shoes that have no logos or white/coloured decorative elements. They must be waterproof (leather and polishable) and of a style that is not likely to endanger the wearer whilst in College. Boots, open-toed shoes, sling backs, sandals or flip-flops are not permitted.
Coats: Weatherproof outdoor coats must be acceptable for College use and should only be worn outside and not when inside a College building. Denim, leather, imitation leather jackets, tracksuit tops and hoodies are not acceptable. Coats should not display any inappropriate logos. In cold or wet weather appropriate hats and scarves may be worn to and from College.
Hair: If longer than collar length, hair must be tied back in situations where it could cause a danger to the individual or others, such as in PE and other practical lessons. Extreme fashion hairstyles (eg: very short crew cut, decorative shaved elements or motifs) and extreme hair colours are not allowed - hair must be of a natural colour
Jewellery: the only jewellery which is acceptable is a wrist watch and one pair of small plain gold or silver stud earrings, worn in the ear lobe. No other piercings or piercing retainers are permitted, even if clear. We accept no liability for jewellery brought into College.
Make up: Any makeup worn by students should be natural and discreet. Colourless nail varnish only may be worn. False nails or nail extensions of any description represent a health and safety risk and may not be worn. Students will be required to remove inappropriate make up or nail varnish
Aerosols – Aerosols of any kind are not permitted in school.
Lost property - The College cannot accept any responsibility for loss of property. Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly marked with your child’s name – please check regularly that the name is still visible.
Our policy on school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform:
Promotes a sense of pride in the school
Is practical, smart and affordable
Identifies students of the school
Creates a sense of community and belonging
Promotes equality amongst students in terms of appearance
Has been designed with health and safety in mind
Sixth Form Students:
Rationale: Smart students, who take pride in their appearance, are a role model to younger students. Taking pride in their dress will prepare them for the world of work, where smartness is an expectation.
All students must wear their lanyard and I.D. badge so that it is noticeable at all times unless they are taking part in an educational activity where it is unsuitable to wear one. Failure to adhere to these rules may result in students being sent home to change into acceptable clothing, or working in isolation until changes can be made.
