Branded College ‘Hoodies’ only may be worn around the site but must always be removed in lessons. Other ‘Hoodies’ are not permitted.

Socks and Tights

Tights must be plain, opaque, black or flesh coloured. Socks worn with skirts must be plain in colour and ankle length.


The College reserves the right to request that hair is tied back in circumstances where students’ health or safety is put at risk.


Plain black sensible footwear, preferably flat. No logos, coloured flares, coloured stitching or laces, high heels or boots.

Trainers to be completely black all over. No sandals or sling backs.


Coats, scarves, gloves and hats can be worn to and from College but not in lessons or the Library. Coats must not be worn in place of College sweatshirts but they can be worn as well as. Where students travel to and from College on foot or bicycle, we recommend that they wear reflective gear and helmets.


Bags must be durable, 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.

Make Up

Discreet make-up may be worn. The College reserves the right to instruct students to remove excessive make-up and nail polish.
