Uniform

The College uniform, chosen by the Governing Body in consultation with the students, is smart, comfortable, practical and easy to purchase locally. We want our students to look like young people in a working environment.

Please provide tailored trousers rather than those resembling leggings and help us encourage girls to wear skirts of a suitable length for the workplace.

A high standard of personal appearance is expected. Hairstyles must be appropriate for College, and jewellery should be discreet and can include one pair of stud-type earrings and one ring. All other facial jewellery is inappropriate and should not be worn to College.

Please support us in ensuring your son or daughter does not wear fashion extremes in school.

Please label ALL items of clothing. The loss of items causes students and parents/carers considerable upset.

Earrings/Piercing

Only one set of stud earrings and/or one bracelet may be worn. There should be no other body/facial piercings

School trousers should be formal, not a jean type, chino cut, or leggings. As a guide, there should be some space between the leg and the material from the knee down and this part of the garment should be able to hold a crease. They should be full length and rest on the shoe. They should not be turned up.

School skirts should be of a suitable length and be appropriate for the workplace (i.e. closer to the knee than the bottom).

Black belts may be worn for the purpose of keeping trousers up and should fit and be worn through the trouser belt loop.

Shorts may be worn all year but must be black knee length of a formal/tailored type cut.

What happens when things go wrong?

There may be times when your child may have to wear something that is not school uniform. Please send a note to your child’s tutor explaining why this is the case and when your son/daughter will be wearing the correct uniform, which should be the next day, unless there are exceptional circumstances.

If your child’s skirt is too short, or trousers too tight, or shoes are not correct, and you have not told us there are very good reasons, she/he will work away from other students on their timetabled subjects until we are able to discuss the situation with you. Students wearing the wrong shoes will be issued with plimsolls, as is the case in many other schools. In order to be hygienic, at the end of each day, the plimsolls will need to be sprayed so germs are not spread.

Many thanks in advance for your support getting this important issue right.
