Please do not buy uniform marked below as 'To be purchased from School Shop only'  from any other supplier as it will not comply with our uniform policy.

Examination PE:

There are a range of items available to purchase for all students who have chosen either a KS4 or KS5 examination course within Physical / Outdoor Education.



Hair: If longer than collar length, hair must be tied back in situations where it could cause a danger to the individual or others, such as in PE and other practical lessons. Extreme fashion hairstyles (eg: very short crew cut, decorative shaved elements or motifs) and extreme hair colours are not allowed - hair must be of a natural colour.
Jewellery: Students are permitted to wear a maximum of one small discreet stud earring in each ear and one finger ring of plain design, all of which must be removed for practical and PE lessons. No other items of jewellery, including facial piercing jewellery or retainers are permitted under any circumstances. We accept no liability for jewellery brought into College.
Make up: Any makeup worn by students should be natural and discreet. Colourless nail varnish only may be worn. False nails or nail extensions of any description represent a health and safety risk and may not be worn. Students will be required to remove inappropriate make up or nail varnish.

Lost property - The College cannot accept any responsibility for loss of property. Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly marked with your child’s name – please check regularly that the name is still visible.



  • Our policy on school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform:
  • Promotes a sense of pride in the school
  • Is practical, smart and affordable
  • Identifies students of the school
  • Creates a sense of community and belonging
  • Promotes equality amongst students in terms of appearance
  • Has been designed with health and safety in mind
