All students will have to wear their blazers at all times – on corridors, in the dining room, etc. No blazer can be removed in class without a teacher’s permission.
Coats cannot be worn inside the school building and hoodies are not permitted anywhere on school premises (inside or out). We must therefore encourage students to bring a coat to school rather than a hoodie.
Students are expected to wear UNIFORM. A note MUST be brought from home if they need to be excused from wearing an item of uniform. The Headteacher reserves the right to ban any item of clothing or personal appearance which is deemed to bring the school into disrepute or to have an adverse effect on the culture of the Academy.
