UNIFORM REGULATIONS

All students in Years 7 – 11 are expected to comply with the uniform regulations.  Uniform and PE kit is supplied by Sportswear International.  All possessions should be marked with the student’s name. All staff should reprimand students infringing uniform rules. A consistent approach to this is essential.

In accordance with the law, and as in all UK schools, students who have undergone baptism relating to the wearing of the kirpan may do so, provided they comply with the school’s specific policy and guidelines. This is available from the school office.
