We are aware that there are always a range of opinions when it comes uniform within school and with such a large school community it is not always possible that everyone will agree. However, we are proud that our school has such incredibly high expectations, which has translated into some phenomenal exam results and a friendly and purposeful atmosphere, alongside external recognition such as ‘World Class School’ status. I really appreciate your support in ensuring that your daughter or son comes to school looking incredibly smart as this is vital and very much appreciated.
We also appreciate that children grow so quickly and for some families the cost of uniform can be a challenge. We have spare uniform in school so, if you need support, you can contact email@example.com and type the word UNIFORM along with the name(s) of your child / children who attend this school. We can then arrange a time for you to come to school when it suits you.
- Piercings must be restricted to one stud per ear/ nose. No other visible piercings are allowed. For health and safety reasons, hoop ear or nose rings are not allowed and you will be required to remove them.
- Jewellery and make up must not be excessive.
The above is not an exhaustive list of uniform requirements, and may also be open to change in light of evolving fashions and pupil choices. These expectations will be reviewed on an ongoing basis and communicated with pupils/parents if and when required. School uniform decisions (including hair, make-up, jewellery, clothing and footwear) are primarily made on the basis of what is considered ‘appropriate for a formal school setting’. The definition of this is entirely at the discretion of the Headteacher: opinions regarding school uniform are often polarised and, as such, there is no requirement to secure consensus or agreement; decisions therefore will not be open to negotiation or debate. All decisions sit within the overarching principles set by the Governing Body and the statutory and legal position set by the Department for Education.

- Calculator in Maths and Science
