All students are expected to wear full uniform at all times. Any student not in full uniform must have an explanatory note from home. Any unexplained lack of uniform may result in the student being removed from circulation or sent home to change.
Our new uniform consisting of a blue blazer, grey jumper, shirt and tie, grey trousers or skirt and black shoes is compulsory for all new Year 7 students joining us in September 2018. All students can wear the new uniform next year. However, it will still be acceptable to wear the green uniform next year, but it has to be worn in full. Students must wear the jumpers/cardigans and any girls who wish to wear skirts must ensure they are suitable for school and at least knee length. In September 2019 we will expect all students to be wearing the new uniform.
