Students are expected to take a pride in their appearance and to wear the correct uniform items every day, which should be CLEARLY NAMED. We seek the full co-operation of all parents and students with regards to the following information. If, for some reason, there is a problem with this, students should report to their Dean in the morning before school and they will be lent the correct item for the day. 

The only exception to this is if a student has a foot injury which makes the wearing of the correct shoes impossible. In this case the student should take a note from their parent/guardian to the nurse in the Health Centre before school. She will give them a signed exception slip they need to carry for the duration of the problem. 

If students are wearing an incorrect piece of clothing or jewellery, it will be confiscated and given to their Dean. Confiscated items are given back after school each Friday. 

The official uniform requirements can be viewed through the Girls and Boys uniform links to the right. Could parents please ensure that they are buying items that conform to these requirements. Footwear sometimes seems to be a problem area with parents buying shoes that do not meet our regulations. To save parents then having the experience of having to buy a second pair, we suggest they ring the school and check a style out if there is any uncertainty before purchasing it. 

Any facial piercing is against school rules and no student will be allowed in class with visible piercing. Piercing cannot merely be covered up with a piece of plaster. Clear plastic keepers can be worn for the first few weeks if they are needed to keep a hole from closing up, as long as they are not visible. 

Male students must be clean shaven.
