School Dress Code
The school operates a compulsory dress code and all students adhere to it. The code operates on a theme of plain black and white and seeks to accommodate the needs of all our students including the wearing of cultural dress. The aim is to make the dress easily and cheaply available and helps emphasise the school’s identity. The picture below shows acceptable uniform standards as required by the school.
School Blazer Plain black blazer with the school badge must be worn.
School Trousers Trousers must be tailored loose fitting and cover the ankle. Skinny fit trousers, leggings, or jeans must not be worn. Trousers which are made from stretchy material including lycra or elastane are not acceptable. There should be no visible buttons or zips. Students may wear a black or grey belt. Parents and carers should note that school uniform retailers sell trousers which we deem unacceptable and parents/carers should satisfy themselves before purchasing that they meet the required expectations.
School Skirt Skirts should be plain black knee length skirts. Tight fitting or ‘tube’ skirts must not be worn.
School Shirt or Blouse plain white with long or short sleeves and collar, suitable for wearing the school tie. This means a shirt with a fastening top button. Shirts must be tucked in at all times.
School Tie Black and House colour diagonal stripe clip on tie.
School Sweatshirt Plain black, V-necked with school badge.
Shalwar Plain black, plain cotton, narrow tapered trousers.
Kameez Plain black, plain cotton, straight line, mid-calf length dress with round neck and long or short sleeves. A school sweatshirt, as described above, may also be worn.
Scarf/Chuni/Duppatta Plain white or plain black cotton scarf.
Socks Black or grey.
Tights Black or neutral.
Footwear Flat, black shoes (no logos), with a sturdy sole, that can be polished and are not suede. Training Shoes of any type are not allowed apart from for PE lessons, or sporting activities at break times.
Outside Clothing Need not be black or white but we would encourage the purchase of sensible coats. Outside clothing must NOT be worn inside the school building.
Hats During the winter a plain black wool hat and in summer a plain white baseball cap (with no logos) may be worn outside the building ONLY.
ALL OUTDOOR CLOTHING INCLUDING HATS MUST BE PLACED IN STUDENT LOCKERS FOR THE DURATION OF THE SCHOOL DAY
Students who are not in correct uniform will be removed from the main body of the school until parental contact has been made and an agreed solution made.

Our first consideration is the safety of our students. The wearing of certain jewellery can be a danger to themselves or to others, e.g. heavy chains, bracelets, medallions or sovereign rings.
The school reserves the right to request any student to remove jewellery which we believe could cause injury to themselves or others.
One small nose stud is allowed but must be removed during P.E. sessions in the interests of safety. Nose rings are not allowed.
Ear-rings: students may only wear one small, solid stud or plain sleeper to a maximum size of a five pence piece per ear. They must be removed during P.E. sessions.
No other form of body piercing is allowed in school.
The steel bangle worn by members of our Sikh Community has a religious significance. It should be as small and light as possible for safety reasons. No other type of bracelet should be worn.
Rings – one plain ring is allowed. The wearing of more than one ring or any ring other than a plain type is not permitted.
Students may wear a wrist watch.
We encourage students not to bring items of value to school for obvious reasons and jewellery often falls into this category.
Make-up and Nail Varnish
The wearing of make-up, tinted lip salve or nail varnish is not allowed. False/Acrylic type nails are not permitted.
Hair must be worn in an appropriate style, and should be of one natural colour. Hair styles and patterning which could be deemed offensive are not permitted.
It is vital that all students are equipped with the correct tools to support their learning. Under no circumstances should a student be sent to school without the following:
- A bag which is large enough to carry a folder if necessary.
- A pencil case which contains a pen, pencil and ruler.
- A school planner (these will be issued to students on the first day of term).
We want our students to be fully prepared to learn and are sure that you will be fully supportive of us on this matter.
