The school uniform can:
- instil pride
- support positive behaviour and discipline
- encourage identity with, and support for, school ethos
- ensure students of all races and backgrounds feel welcome
- protect children from social pressures to dress in a particular way
- nurture cohesion and promote good relations between different groups of students
We appreciate that young people want to express themselves as they begin to develop their sense of identity, yet we do appreciate and expect parental support in implementing this policy.
Deviation from any part of these rules (e.g. on medical/SEND grounds) is only permissible with the written consent of the Headteacher or a Senior Assistant Headteacher. The school retains the right to make a final decision on the interpretation of the issues of dress.

An appropriate, waterproof and sealable bag should be purchased for the protection of all school items. Because students carry items of a reasonable weight in the bag, drawstring bags are not acceptable. Bags should be dark in colour and logos should be discreet. Fashion bags, carrier bags and handbags are not acceptable. Our preferred style of bag is a satchel or a rucksack. School recommends the Unicol Premier backpack, but parents/carers may choose their own.
- Belts must be black, narrow and of a traditional style
- Coats and scarves must be appropriate and weatherproof. Any logos must be discreet
- Black school trousers: Straight, black trousers that are not tight to the leg. No black jeans, leggings, skinny, flared or black canvas trousers of any type. The trousers must not have any rivets/studs in the pockets or have showy or decorative zips.
It is expected that students wear their uniform with pride. This means:
- Top button fastened at all times
- Shirt tucked in at all times
- Kilts must be worn on the knee
- Blazers to be worn at all times unless a teacher allows removal in the classroom
- Tights should be black and ankle socks should be blue or black
- Jewellery is not permitted
- A smart business environment appropriate hair style. Hair must not be worn as a fashion statement. Cropped or shaved styles are not acceptable and hair colour must be natural. Hair must be neat and tidy
- Hair accessories – small, discreet, plain hair bands/clasps (navy or black). No bows, scarves or scrunchies
- Make-up and nail polish are not allowed. False nails and false eyelashes are not permitted.
- Tattoos are illegal for children of school age and should never be visible.
All property should be clearly marked with the student’s name.
A final decision on what is acceptable rests with the Headteacher and Assistant Headteachers.
