  • For pupils with incorrect uniform, the school has a stock of uniform which can be loaned out temporarily for the day. This is regularly cleaned and laundered. There is an expectation that, if a pupil is asked to wear this uniform, then they will comply without argument. Refusal to comply will result in the pupil being internally isolated; parents will be contacted.
  • Pupils who do not wear their uniform correctly will be reminded to wear their uniform correctly and given a debit.

Headscarves:  A plain black head scarf may be worn to cover the hair.  Girls who wish to wear headscarves may do so as long as these conform to the requirements listed over:

  • The fabric should be lightweight and black.
  • The headscarves should be folded under the chin, taken round to the back of the neck and the ends tucked in – this conforms to health and safety requirements.
  • Headscarves should be worn so that the collar and tie can be seen.

Jilbab: Under Article 9.2 of the Human Rights Act, the Jilbab is not permitted as part of the uniform.  This decision has been taken by the Governors in consultation with the school community (students, parents and staff).
