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 appreciate your full support in ensuring your children are ready and prepared to learn during the school day

Students may attend school in their PE kit only on the days that they are timetabled PE. They are expected to do this for every PE 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 however, for safety reasons only small studs are acceptable and these MUST be removed for PE.
Facial and tongue piercings should not be worn during the school day.
Other body piercings are not recommended and must be removed for any activity which may impact on the safety of the student.
We will ask students to remove anything that poses a health and safety risk or which breaches our policy.
Extreme hairstyles or colours are not permitted. We reserve the right to determine what is reasonable.
False nails are not allowed as they impact on work in lessons and are a health and safety risk.
False eyelashes must not be worn.
Excessive amounts of make up are not permitted (we reserve the right to determine what is excessive).
Hats, caps, hoods, sunglasses & any non-school uniform should not be worn inside the school building and students will be asked to remove them.
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.
