Acceptable Standards

All students in Years 7-11 should wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours. We ask all parents/carers for their support of the school uniform guidelines. Students arriving at school in unacceptable attire, may be asked to remove the item, placed in isolation or sent home to get changed. We hold a supply of replacement items into which students may be asked to change. If your child finds it necessary to deviate from uniform regulations, then for KS3, a note must be written for the attention of the Form Tutor in their planner on that particular day. For KS4, a message left, or emailed to the Form Tutor.
