Summer Uniform

At times of extreme heat students will be informed by the Head of School when ties and blazers may be taken off in school.  However, it is expected they will be worn on journeys to and from school and on school trips.

Jewellery

Students may wear a watch and a plain pair of stud earrings but no other jewellery is permitted due to health and safety issues and liability in case of loss.  Therefore, if students wish to have any part of their body pierced they must arrange this at the beginning of the Summer holidays so that the wound has sufficient time to heal.  Plasters may not be worn to cover body jewellery.  If pupils disregard this they will be isolated from other pupils until they comply with the regulation.

Hairstyles and Attire

Baseball caps are not permitted in any circumstances.

Hairstyles and hair colour should not be extreme.  Parents should consult, in advance, with the Head of Year if they are unsure as to the suitability of a change of style.  The school shall be the arbiter of the term ‘extreme’.

As part of this we do not allow students to have their hair or sections of their hair to be dyed with a non-natural hair colour.

Make-up

For Health & Safety reasons make-up and nail polish are not permitted.  In exceptional circumstances light foundation will be permitted to disguise skin complaints.
