The School Uniform is intended to give boys a pride in their appearance and in the School and to ensure fairness to all. Correct uniform should be worn for school, and on school outings unless specific permission is given to the contrary.  General tidiness is expected of all students.  Ornamentation of any kind is not permitted when uniform is being worn.  The normal uniform for Years 7-11 consists of blazer and black or dark grey trousers.  The blazer must be of the standard type – navy blue (not black) and single breasted, with badge.  All items should be marked with the owner’s name.  Hair should be no longer than collar length or it should be tied back or, where hair is worn long for religious reasons, kept tidy and covered with a turban or similar head covering.  Other head coverings worn on religious grounds, such as kippahs or taqiyahs, are, of course, acceptable but should be in a discreet colour. Extremes of hair styles such as shaved heads or patterns shaved into extremely short hair are not acceptable.  Inappropriate appearance will not be permitted, eg visible body piercings or tattoos, and The Headteacher reserves the right to decide the suitability of appearance and clothing for schoolwear, especially as fashions are constantly changing.

If required, pupils should wear a smart, plain coloured outdoor coat: denim jackets and ‘hoodies’ are not permitted. Please see the school’s Behaviour Policy for further information on uniform and expectations.  Parents are advised to read the policy before purchasing an expensive outdoor coat to check whether it is suitable for school.
