School Bag

These should be unbranded (both in terms of names and logos) and of an appropriate size for a range of school books to be carried within.

Please note the following points:

  1. Haircuts must be appropriate to school; long hair is to be tied back / up during practical lessons such as Science / PE and technology.
  2. Haircuts should not be shaved or include patterns (commonly known as tramlines and suchlike). Hair colour should be natural. 
  3. Jewellery should be kept to a minimum. One small signet ring is permitted, as is one pair of stud earrings, worn in the lobe of the ear only. No other piercings are permitted on health and safety grounds. Necklaces, if worn, should be discreet and not visible i.e. worn underneath the shirt / blouse. False nails are not permitted on the same health and safety grounds.
  4. All students will be expected to wear a warm, waterproof coat during inclement weather. Denim jackets and camouflage items are not to be worn, neither are heavily branded / logoed items.
