Guidelines for all students

Footwear

  • Black lace-up or t-bar leather shoes. Pupils are expected to wear regulation footwear to and from school and should also have suitable footwear for Physical Education and Sport. Parents are reminded of the need for children to wear suitably protective footwear while working in the Technology areas.

Jewellery

  • The only jewellery allowed with the school uniform is plain silver or gold ear studs.

Overclothing

  • Children are permitted to wear protective clothing over their uniforms when travelling to and from school. Children must wear their school uniform at school.

Hair

  • Hair should be tidily kept at all times and worn in keeping with the intended spirit of the school uniform. Pupils with long hair should tie it back neatly.

Manner of Attire

  • Students are expected to wear their uniforms neatly.

Naming of Uniform
