School Uniform

The School Uniform and 6th form dress code is intended to give students 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. 

For all students: 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, hijab in the Sixth form, or similar head coverings. These should be in a discreet colour. Extremes of hair styles such as shaved heads or patterns shaved into extremely short hair are not acceptable for all year groups.  Inappropriate appearance will not be permitted, e.g, 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.

Yr 7 to 11
Ornamentation of any kind is not permitted when uniform is being worn.  The 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. 


If required, all students should wear a smart, plain coloured outdoor coat: denim jackets and ‘hoodies’ are not permitted. Any logos should be discrete. Please see the school’s Behaviour Policy for further information on uniform expectations.

Sixth form

Although an official school uniform is not worn in the sixth form, the dress code is that both male and female students should be dressed appropriately for a formal business environment. The dress code should be adhered to when attending school and on school outings, unless specific permission is given to the contrary. 

The sixth form male dress code is a plain dark business suit, business shirt, tie and dark shoes and socks.

The sixth form female dress code is a plain dark business suit, which may be a trouser, skirt or dress suit. Skirts and dresses must be at least knee length. A business blouse/shirt, black, navy or neutral tights and low-heeled dark shoes.
Discreet make-up may be worn.

For all 6th form students no suit should be too tight and should be of a non-clingy fabric.
A plain dark V-necked pullover may be worn under the suit jacket when it is cold.
A clean-shaven appearance or a neatly trimmed beard are acceptable.
For Health and Safety reasons the only permissible visible jewellery is a pair of small ear studs.

Bursaries are available to help towards uniform costs.

If you have any questions about this dress code please contact Mrs Halestrap, Head of Sixth Form.
