GENERAL POINTS

  • We appreciate that some shoes can be 'trainer-like', however, for clarity, sports brands such as Adidas, Nike, Puma, Converse and Vans do not make shoes and any footwear from these or similar brands is not permissible. Shoes should be black in colour, have an upper made from one material, which should be leather or leather-like and should have no distinctive branding. We ask that parents support us in both the spirit and the letter of these rules.
  • Hairstyles for both boys and girls are expected to be neat and tidy and not in any fashion that will draw any undue attention to themselves. Extreme fashion hairstyles including Mohicans/Mohawks, shavings/markings, dyed hair, dip dyed hair and contrasting highlights are not allowed.  Excessive hair products used to sculpt hair into extreme styles are not permitted.  Long hair must be tied back for practical lessons and PE.
  • Nail varnish and make up must not be worn by pupils. Acrylics and gel nails are not permitted.
  • Watches and one small plain stud may be worn in the ear lobe. No other piercing or other items of jewellery are permitted apart from the Sikh bangle.
  • Studs and watches will be removed during PE lessons and remain the responsibility of the pupil. If studs cannot be removed, tape or plasters must be brought from home and worn over them.
