Uniform/Appearance

  • Uniform must be worn in its entirety, as per the uniform list at all times, including the journey to and from school. Jumpers may be removed in the summer term, following the Principal’s directive.
  • Tights and socks must not be worn together. Plain black or white ankle socks for girls and black socks only for boys (no sports/trainer socks, frilly socks, knee-length socks or inner shoe ‘sockettes’).
  • Coats must be worn in colder weather. There should be no denim, fur, suede or leather jackets or hooded sweatshirts/tracksuit tops/sports jackets.
  • Coats must not be worn inside school.
  • Jumpers must not be tucked in to skirts or trousers.
  • T-shirts may not be worn under white shirts.
  • Skirts must be of regulation colour and knee length.
  • Trousers must be tailored fit (not ‘skinny’ fit or chino jeans style).
  • All pupils must wear black school shoes, preferably of a polished type (no heels, boots, canvas or backless shoes).
  • Hairstyles must be of a conventional nature. Girls’ hair should be neatly tied back. Boys must have short hairstyles (minimum grade 3). Regardless of gender: tram-lines, wedges, undercuts or shaved hair are not permitted. Styling products are not permitted. Highlighting and colouring of hair is not permitted and neither are hair extensions. It is acknowledged that textured hair is an important part of a pupil’s racial, ethnic and cultural identity and requires specific styling for hair health and maintenance and therefore in such circumstances braids and corn rows can be worn. Braiding must be an appropriate length and match natural hair colour. Beading is not permitted. Boys must be clean shaven.
  • Girls may wear one pair of plain stud earrings in the earlobes and all pupils may wear a wrist watch, but not a smart watch. No other jewellery is allowed.
  • Make-up must not be worn and nail polish is not allowed. Nails should be kept short and not pointed. No permanent make-up procedures (e.g. eyebrow or eye lash dying or extensions) are allowed. Fake tan must not be used.
  • Uniform must be worn for official school events e.g. Prize Evening, Open Evening, Parents’ Evenings, Concerts, Parish Masses. School rules apply at all evening events e.g. no mobile phones to be used.
