School Uniform (2021-2022)


SCHOOL UNIFORM 2021-2022

The School expects a high standard of regulation uniform dress from each student and we are sure that this policy will be supported by you as parents and carers.  Uniform requirements are set out below.

Failure to abide by the following rules may result in removal from lessons and or break times.

Make Up

Natural discreet make-up is only allowed in Years 9, 10 and 11. Nail varnish and false or acrylic nails are not permitted in school.

Jewellery

This can be hazardous for certain activities during the school day. Only one ear stud may be worn in each ear. Two plain rings may be worn, but large sovereign type rings are unsuitable.  A watch is permitted but no other bracelets, bangles, necklaces or armbands.

Important news on School Uniform Shopping 

As the term draws to a close, we’re already looking ahead to September. Our uniform provider Monkhouse is working hard to make sure that despite the challenges posed by international shipping, Covid and Brexit, our parents will be able to find everything they need.

This is a reminder that the best way to ensure your child has all the uniforms they need in good time for the start of the school year is to shop early if this is possible for you.

Please book your appointment with Monkhouse now, preferably choosing an appointment in July or Early August.

To stay up to date with news on stock and special offers on uniforms and accessories, register for updates from our supplier here.

Thank you for understanding. We know not all parents are able to shop early, but the challenges posed when large numbers of families shop in the last two weeks of August is something we are all keen to avoid. After what has been an interesting school year, please help us to help you to ensure we all return in September raring to go!
