Uniform represents the school and gives clear messages about the individual - smart appearance equals smart attitude. It also promotes the College identity whilst showing that all students are part of the same school.
Our uniform was chosen by talking to parents, students and staff and consideration was given to comfort, quality and cost.
Correct uniform must be worn at all times, including to and from school. We also consider alterations or additions to students’ natural appearance is part of uniform and therefore, our expectations extend to make-up, nails etc. Plain black blazer
