Students need to look smart and abide by the school’s stipulated uniform expectations, both on the way to and from school and during the school day.
Uniform will be checked by the tutor each day and by teachers throughout each day.
No other variations of the school uniform regulations (below) are permitted; please consult with the school if you require any additional advice or guidance before making purchases.
All items of clothing must be clearly named.
A new school skirt was introduced in September 2017; this is compulsory for all students in Years 7, 8 and 9 and also for Year 11 Prefects. We also would prefer that all Year 10s wear the new skirt, given that this new one should last the final two years of school. It is a much better quality skirt than our current one and the girls who have tried it tell us that it is much more comfortable. The new skirt is easy to wash (no fabric conditioner please) and can be hung up to dry; if this is done, the skirt will require no ironing.
All girls will still have the option of wearing navy blue trousers (see below).
