Uniform

Our uniform code comes from our vision statement.  Our community is inspired by simplicity and family equality and so our pupil dress code ensures that no member of the school family stands out from others while at school.

All pupils are expected to wear full uniform from their first day until the last day of their exams in Year 11. If your daughter is in Year 11, please make sure that she has correct, well-fitting uniform for the duration of the year, including the exam season. It is not possible for pupils to wear alternatives.  Full uniform must be worn both to and from school as well as in school (including shoes).  

When purchasing shoes, please make sure that they are comfortable and suitable for walking the distance to and from school. All pupils are expected to wear correct shoes at all times. If a girl cannot for medical reasons, she should present herself to the pastoral hub as soon as she arrives with a note, preferably from a GP, to explain.  Please see below for more details and pictures of appropriate school shoes. 

We know that pupils sometimes wish to get piercings, especially in the summer holidays. The only jewellery that pupils are allowed to wear when at school or in uniform is as follows: 

  • Small (size of the piercing), round, plain (single material) studs (gold-, silver-, pearl-coloured) - one per ear lobe, may be worn by girls with pierced ears.
  • A small, plain metal cross or crucifix may be worn on a plain metal chain.

 

No other piercings are permitted (this includes being covered with a plaster). Retainers or clear jewellery are not permitted under any circumstances. Acrylic/false nails, nail varnish and make up are not permitted. 

Pupils are expected always to have their PE kit on the appropriate days and be changed in lessons unless under extreme circumstances, agreed in advance by their PE teacher.  If a pupil is excused from PE for any reason (due to illness or injury), a note should be given to their teacher, explaining the reason.  If this is likely to be long-term, then a note from the doctor may be required.  They should still get changed and join in with the lesson in a capacity that is safe and healthy to do.  This could include roles such as coach, umpire, official or performing skills which do not cause further injury.  This will ensure that pupils still feel part of the class community and are then able to join in more easily when they are fully fit.

In matters of uniform, we do not make exceptions and the school’s decision is final.

Uniform grants are available for families who are in receipt of certain benefits. Please see the letter and application form at the bottom of this page for more details.
