We are very proud of the high standard of appearance of our pupils. In order to maintain this, the school has a uniform and appearance policy which every pupil must adhere to. Staff are asked to ensure that pupils are

monitored at all times. All instances of incorrect uniform and appearance are noted. If a pupil has to be reprimanded twice for infringements of the code listed below (and/or the homework diary) then on the second occasion a letter will be sent home informing parents that their child has been placed in a lunchtime detention. Repeated infringement of uniform will lead to more serious sanctions and parental contact.

– Boys are not allowed to wear earrings; girls can wear one pair of plain gold or silver studs in the ear lobe. If ears are pierced multiple times, earrings must be worn in the first piercing in the ear lobe. No jewellery may be worn as other body piercings. Pupils can wear a religious medal underneath their blouse or shirt. No rings are to be worn. Watches must be plain and not brightly coloured.

– Make-up, including nail varnish, false nails or extensions, fake tan, eyebrow or eyelash tinting must not be worn.
