Additional Items

Pupils are not required to wear the additional items of uniform below.  However, if they choose to do so, then the items must be school regulation.

Jumper: plain navy blue V neck woollen jumper (black is not acceptable).  This can only be worn in addition to a school blazer and not as an alternative to it.  If worn jumpers must have no patterns, logos or other markings.

Belts: if a belt is worn it should be plain black, navy or dark grey.  Oversized buckles are not permitted.  If worn belts must have no patterns, logos or other markings.

Other Guidelines

Socks: socks or tights should be worn and should be plain black, navy blue or dark grey.

Shoes: black school shoes with no ‘flashes’ or lighter colours.  Leather or leather look.  Trainers, boots, platform or high-heeled shoes are not acceptable.

Outdoor Clothes: must be plain and dark in colour.  Denim, leather and brightly coloured coats are not permitted in school.

Jewellery: Other than one pair of small studs and one signet ring, jewellery is not allowed in school.  In the event of a child having their nose/eyebrow/lip/tongue/upper ear etc pierced the stud must be removed during school hours.  It is not acceptable to cover such studs with a sticking plaster.

Make-up, Nails & Hairstyles: We consider it unnecessary for make-up to be worn at school. With this in mind, excessive self-tanning, foundation, highlighting, HD brows, false eyelashes, eye shadowing, blushers and lipsticks are not acceptable. Pupils are not permitted any nail varnish and should not have nails of a length deemed unsafe. Nail extensions, tips, acrylics and gel nails are not acceptable. Pupils should not adopt ‘extreme’ hairstyles for example, bold unnatural colours or extremely short styles with shaved patterns. Long hair will need to be tied back in some lessons for health and safety reasons.

Pupils are not permitted to wear:

*leggings, footless or patterned tights, fashion skirts or blouses
*coloured, lettered or hooded undergarments which are visible through their white shirts
*fashion accessories for example: badges (other than those issued by the school), fashion belts, legwarmers etc
*fashion hair accessories other than hair band/hair grips in school colours of navy blue, black or dark grey
*polo shirts, hoodies, tracksuit tops, caps, sweatshirts or other similar sports or designer clothing
