SCHOOL UNIFORM 2018-19

Pupils are expected to wear correct uniform at all times including on their journey to and from school. The school believes that a smart and formal appearance is important in encouraging pupils to take pride in themselves, their school and to strive to maintain high standards in all aspects of school life.  The only symbol to be displayed is the school badge.

If pupils are not in full school uniform they will not be able to attend lessons. Pupils will work in the school’s internal exclusion room (205G) until the correct uniform is worn.
