Uniform & Equipment

School uniform is to be worn by all students whilst at school and during journeys to and from School and on other school occasions.  Blazers must normally be worn at all times, unless a teacher gives permission for it to be removed, a blue v-neck jumper (available from the official school outfitter, see below) may be worn underneath.  Hooded tops and cardigans are not allowed.  Shirts should be tucked in trousers at all times and all the buttons should remain fastened, the appropriate house tie must be worn and should be knotted at the neck and the tie should rest on the belt-line.  Staff will not allow students into their lessons until they are looking smart and will ensure they look well presented when they leave.

Items marked * should be purchased through the School’s official outfitter, SchoolShop, www.school-shop.co.uk. They are a completely online service that deliver directly to you, with the ability to order online 24/7 at your convenience.
