DRESS CODE

Students are expected to wear their uniform at all times and take pride in their appearance.  It is not simply enough to have a uniform - it is how we wear it that matters.  Here are a few reminders to ensure standards always remain high.

On rare occasions there may be a problem with an item of clothing. Please bring a note from your parents explaining the problem and hand it to your form tutor.

If however you arrive at school regularly in incorrect uniform it is possible that you will be sent home to change.
