Supplier information and uniform regulations

Uniform and PE Kit


Alongside the staff requirement to dress professionally, we require all of our students to dress in the specified school uniform at all times, with the exception of Sixth Form students who are asked to wear business dress.

The school does not tolerate students wearing nail varnish, discernable make-up, or any jewellery except a wrist watch. We also ask students to refrain from choosing extreme hairstyles (including unnatural colours).

Ties and blazers are compulsory items of our school uniform, and students may only wear plain black school shoes; no trainers, boots, logos, coloured trims/piping etc. are allowed.

ALL ITEMS OF UNIFORM SHOULD BE CLEARLY LABELLED WITH YOUR CHILD'S NAME.

To ensure conformity, certain items of uniform (blazers, skirts, jumpers and ties) can only be purchased from our named suppliers:
