A high standard of personal appearance is expected of all students and staff. As part of the rights and responsibilities students have in our College, we expect that they should LOOK SMART by wearing the correct College uniform at all times. We expect all staff will monitor uniform throughout the day.
One pair of discreet stud earrings (no larger than a five penny coin). No other forms of visible piercing are allowed. No bracelets or rings. Necklaces should not be visible. No more than one watch should be worn. Earrings must be removed for PE lessons.
Discreet make-up may be worn. The College reserves the right to instruct students to remove excessive make-up and nail polish.
The College reserves the right to request that hair is tied back in circumstances where students’ health or safety is put at risk. Hijab head dress to be plain and dark in colour.
Coats, scarves, gloves and hats can be worn to and from College but not in lessons or in the Library. Coats must not be worn in place of College sweatshirts but they can be worn in addition to these. Sweatshirts or ‘hoodies’ are not permitted. Where students travel to and from College on foot or bicycle, we recommend that they wear reflective gear and helmets.
Bags must be durable and big enough to fit an A4 folder and work books. At the College, we are adopting more sustainable and environmentally friendly policies; therefore, we believe plastic bags are not acceptable as an alternative to the main College bag.
