* COVID-19 Update * On days where children have PE lessons they should come to school wearing their PE kit. In colder weather, we strongly advise that all pupils wear appropriate layers in addition to their regular school uniform. For Key Stage 3 pupils a suitable face covering is required in school every day.
Whilst recognising that pupils may wish to be fashionable, staff and governors expect certain standards of dress and appearance to be adhered to. Uniform must be kept clean, worn tidily at school and on the way to and from school. We offer the following guidelines for parents/carers and ask for co-operation in maintaining the high standard of personal appearance we expect from our pupils.
Please also refer to our uniform information leaflet on acceptable schoolwear/appearance.

Hair, Make Up and Jewellery
Hair styles and haircuts should not involve colouring and should be a minimum of a number 2 clipper cut. No extreme hairstyles, tramlines or patterns are permitted. In certain lessons hair must be tied back for safety reasons. Large bows, slides, flowers or other similar fashion accessories are not permitted.
Pupils are allowed to wear a single stud in each ear lobe (ear lobe spacers are not permitted to be worn in school), and a wrist watch. For health and safety reasons, no other jewellery is to be worn. Make-up or nail varnish must not be worn.
Shirts, Trousers and Skirts
Skirts should be a modest length and no more than an inch above the knee. Long ‘maxi’ skirts, tight ‘tube’ skirts and ‘skater-style’ skirts are not permitted.
Trousers should be tailored and not tight fitting or ‘skinny fit’. Other fashion trousers such as jeggings are not permitted, nor are denim or cord trousers. If a belt is worn it must be black.
Shirts must have a collar with a top button which should be properly done up. Shirts should also be tucked into trousers or skirts at all times. Ties should not be loose around the neck and should be a reasonable length. During the summer term only, KS2 pupils may wear a sky blue polo shirt and KS3 pupils may wear a white polo shirt. In the summer term, pupils do not have to wear a tie if they are wearing a polo shirt and girls may also wear a blue gingham school dress.
All pupils should wear black shoes which are fully enclosed and can be polished. Canvas, suede or trainer shoes are not permitted. Shoes must not have a heel. No boots.
