  • Black tailored shorts (loose fitting, mid-thigh length or longer).
  • Black tailored skirts (loose fitting, knee length or longer - no denim or tube skirts).

One wrist watch and one small pair of ear studs may be worn. No bracelets or any form of piercing allowed.


Tights must be plain black and not patterned, with no holes.


Appropriate outdoor coats (preferably black) should be worn outside. They must not be worn inside the building, apart from the dining room.

Footwear (applies from September 2019)

Pupils must wear flat, plain, black shoes with no white or coloured logos, soles or markings. Sandals and boots are not allowed.

However, in adverse weather conditions, e.g. snow, appropriate footwear can be worn, but only to and from school.

Pupils must wear suitable shoes which offer reasonable protection when participating in Design and Technology lessons in the workshop areas.

Examples of footwear that is NOT appropriate:


PE Equipment

No items of school uniform are to be worn as part of your PE kit.
This includes:

  • School jumper / hoody.
  • School shoes.
  • Coat.

Mouthguards and shin pads:

We strongly encourage parents to purchase and reinforce the importance of wearing a mouth guard with their child, when taking part in curriculum hockey or rugby PE lessons.

Students taking part in extra curricula hockey or rugby fixtures and tournaments will be expected to have and wear a mouth guard in order to participate.

Shin pads are also strongly recommended for playing rugby and hockey.


What happens if correct school uniform is not worn?

We are confident that we can rely on the good sense of both pupils and parents to maintain acceptable standards. However, staff will carry out daily checks on uniform and incorrect uniform will be confiscated.

Hoodies and jackets will be kept in school until a parent can come into school to collect it – whilst incorrect footwear, trousers and skirts will be given back at the end of the school day. If uniform is available to be changed into, students will be provided with appropriate alternative uniform.

The usual school sanctions will apply if students do not wear the correct uniform. For more information see our behaviour policy on our policies page on the school website.
