    School  Uniform regulations have been confirmed and  adopted by  the  School Governing Body in order to foster  pride  in  the school  and  a  sense of belonging to it. All pupils must be dressed in accordance with the details set out below. Variations are not permitted unless specified. This is one of the School Rules.

    The school’s dress code is enforced. Pupils are expected to conform to it and wear it tidily. Outdoor clothing is not to be worn in class.

    Pupils are expected to present themselves smartly at all times.

    Sixth form students have their own uniform. Details are contained in the sixth form handbook.

    The school is grateful to parents for their support for school uniform regulations.
