School Uniform

st 5

The Governors and staff expect the school uniform to be worn to school to encourage a sense of belonging and to avoid disputes over unsuitable clothing. The school uniform policy was formulated through consultation between members of staff, governors, parents and students.


This policy aims to:

  • Set out our approach to requiring a uniform that is of reasonable cost and offers the best value for money for parents and carers
  • Explain how we will avoid discrimination in line with our legal duties under the Equality Act 2010
  • Clarify our expectations for school uniform

  • One pair of small studs for pierced ears may be worn at the discretion of the staff. They should be taped over or removed for PE.

Pupils who come without uniform will be loaned suitable clothing for the day.



Students in the Post 16 department may wear their own clothes to school.  These items must be appropriate for a professional environment and not include any offensive images, words or logos.


Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
