Uniform and Appearance

The school fully expects students to take pride in their appearance. Our uniform has been carefully selected so that it is smart, modern and affordable. All students wear blazers and ties in Years 7 to 11. The uniform code applies on journeys to and from school as well as in school. Movement around the school should be quiet and orderly, as should travel to and from school. The Headteacher reserves the right to makes the  final decision on what is or what is not appropriate in terms of school uniform.
