Occasionally trainers need to be worn to school if a student is suffering from a foot injury. Students suffering from a foot injury must bring in a note from parents. If trainers need to be worn for longer than one week, they must be black or dyed black.
We do not encourage the wearing of jewellery. It is unsuitable, frequently unsafe and its loss may cause distress. However, plain ear studs may be worn in pierced ears if necessary (no more than one stud per ear) and a watch. No other jewellery is permitted and no other body piercing is allowed.
Make-up must be discreet. This includes nail varnish. If not, students will be asked to remove it. Hair must be of a natural colour. Students who wear items which obscure their faces will be asked to remove them. This is in order that students can be identified and that teachers are able to judge their engagement with learning or to secure their participation in practical activities or discussions. If headscarves are worn, for religious reasons, they should be plain and linked to school colours.
