Uniform

For all pupils a sharp distinction is drawn between the formal wear of the working day and more relaxed wear at other times. It is expected that pupils will look smart and businesslike when wearing school uniform.

Full details are to be found in the current Clothing List below.

The Sixth Form do not wear uniforms. Dark suits should be worn during working hours.

All items must be properly marked. The regulation items can be obtained from the School Shop. There is a second-hand clothing shop run by the School’s Parents’ Association.

Junior Girls

The school weekday uniform consists of:

2 grey school skirts (regulation)

1 grey herringbone School jacket (regulation) – a second is optional

1 grey v-neck school pullover with red trim (regulation) – 2 preferred

3-4 blue blouses (regulation)

1 or 2 pairs black polished shoes

6/8 pairs black tights (regulation)

1 School scarf (regulation) (optional)

On particular formal occasions girls will wear their red striped blouses.

When in uniform girls should not wear make-up or jewellery (with the exception of one small stud per ear and a confirmation chain). Hair must be neat and tidy, and should not be dyed.

Junior Boys

The school weekday uniform consists of:

1 grey herringbone jacket (regulation) – a second is optional

2 pairs charcoal grey worsted trousers (regulation)

1 grey v-neck school pullover with red trim (regulation) – 2 preferred

4 blue polyester cotton shirts (regulation)

1 school tie (regulation)

1 or 2 pairs black polished shoes

Boys' hair must be neat and tidy and may not be dyed. Boys may not wear jewellery.

In the Summer Term, after summer weather has been declared by the Headmaster, jackets and ties need not be worn. Pupils will still need their more formal uniform for special occasions.

Pupils may wear leisure clothes after lessons on weekdays. On weekends they may wear leisure clothes from the end of lessons on Saturday until the start of lessons on Monday morning.

Sixth Form Dress Code

The dress code from September 2013 for pupils in the Sixth Form is suits for both boys and girls. The emphasis is on business-like smartness, while allowing for a degree of individual expression. All clothes must be pressed, clean and in good repair. Clothes should not be overly tight or revealing. .

In matters of interpretation the School’s judgment is final.

Girls

Suits (jacket with matching skirt, trousers or dress) of a dark grey, black, dark brown or dark blue suiting material should be worn, either plain or with a discreet pinstripe.

Suit skirts or dresses must be from just above the knee to mid-calf length. Suit trousers should be to the ankle and not cropped.

Blouses or shirts must be worn with skirts or trousers. These must be opaque, with or without a collar and must not be low cut at the front. They must have sleeves and should be worn tucked in unless fitted. If a dress is worn shoulders must be covered.

In cold weather a plain knitted V-neck jumper may be worn under the jacket.
