School Uniform


It is our policy that all students wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours. Our policy regarding school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform:
promotes a sense of pride in the school;
engenders a sense of community and belonging towards the school;
is practical and smart;
identifies the students with the school;
is fair and makes students feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance and removes peer pressure to dress in ‘designer’ fashions;
is regarded as suitable wear for school and good value for money by most parents/carers;
can assist identification of strangers on school premises;
is designed with health and safety in mind.

Uniform Requirements:

  • Black, single-breasted blazer with the school badge.
  • White shirt, long or short sleeved, with pointed collar. Shirts must be tucked in at all times.
  • School tie appropriate to a student’s House.
  • Pullover, v-necked and black.
  • Plain black shoes. Trainers and boots are not acceptable.
  • Black skirt or black trousers.
  • Skirts, trousers and shoes must be practical and formal, not fashion items.
  • Skirts must be pleated or plain, no shorter than knee-length and no longer than mid-calf.
  • Trousers must be tailored; neither tight nor baggy; nor excessively flared; not denim or corduroy.
  • Black socks, black or neutral tights must be worn.
  • Hijabs must be plain black or plain white.
