Jewellery 

  • Jewellery should not be excessive or a risk to the pupil’s health and safety within the school environment.

Exceptions  

These guidelines may be relaxed for special events e.g. trips or non-uniform days. However, shorts and low cut/cut off tops are not appropriate. In extreme weather, pupils should continue to dress appropriately for a professional environment but further guidelines will be issued appropriate to the weather conditions, for example excessively cold or hot spells.   

Inappropriate dress 

Pupils who dress inappropriately will be required to attend a uniform check with the Assistant Head Pastoral and reminded of the guidelines. Pupils who fail to comply with these guidelines may be asked to return home to change into something more suitable. If pupils or their parents have any doubt as to whether an item of clothing is suitable for school, they should consult the Head of Sixth Form.
