Skirts or trousers in denim, cord or canvas materials are not acceptable in school, nor are jeans (e.g. with studs and/or patch pockets).  Coloured t-shirts or t-shirts with logos should not be worn under shirts.  Students will not be allowed to walk round school wearing non uniform sweatshirts, jumpers or hoodies.

Jewellery should not be worn:  The exceptions are watches and a simple ear stud but they must be removed for some practical subjects and PE at the discretion of teachers. All reasonable care will be taken, but no responsibility can be accepted for the safety of such items when removed. Other than this, items of jewellery, especially valuable pieces,  should not be brought into school. A member of staff may ask the student to remove it and, if it is worn repeatedly or a student is worried about losing it, may take the item into their care. It is not possible to label jewellery in most cases, nor would we expect all members of staff to issue duplicate receipts for confiscated items. The student is to ask for it back at the end of the day. It is the responsibility of the family to retrieve the item. Any items not claimed by the end of the academic year would go into lost property. If it is not labelled and is of significant value we would attempt to trace the owner. If an item is still not claimed the school will dispose of it or donate it to charity. In almost all cases the school would not accept liability for an item of jewellery brought into school. However, if the student or family seek the return of an item in a reasonable period, and we can be clear it was confiscated, it may be that the school will consider paying compensation on the basis that a member of staff had been negligent. Nose studs and other body piercings including ear stretchers are not allowed.

Make-up Eye shadow, eye liner, lipstick etc. and coloured nail varnish are not allowed.
Hair: Hair/extensions must be natural in colour (i.e. green or purple etc. are not allowed).  Hair must not be excessively short (minimum Grade 2).  In practical subjects long hair must be tied back for safety reasons.

OUTDOOR WEAR

A waterproof outdoor garment is desirable.  This must be a coat or anorak with sleeves. Denim jackets and hoodies are not acceptable.  Badges and emblem should be avoided.  Accident prevention groups recommend light colours and fluorescent and reflective strips.
