School Uniform, Equipment & Expectations

The school is aware that parents welcome a standard dress for their children; this avoids the dictates of fashion and keeps down expense. The Governors know it is important that students should have a sense of belonging and common purpose, which is encouraged by a uniform so that social difference should be avoided.

Every student must adhere to this policy which has the total support of the Governing Body.
