Uniform list 2015

Simmonds is our registered suppplier of uniform.



 A watch and 1 pair of stud earrings – 1 plain stud in the lower lobe of each ear (no hoops). No other jewellery will be permitted.

 Hair Styles

 Hair must be worn in a style, which, in the judgement of the School, is appropriate for a formal uniform situation.  An unnatural striking appearance, which may be considered suitable for social occasions, is inappropriate for the School.

  • Haircuts must be no shorter than a No: 3
  • Shaved patterns, undercuts, extensive braiding* or beading are not acceptable
  • Unnatural/extremes of colour, for example those caused through dyeing or bleaching are not acceptable
  • Styles with coloured streaks, patterns or two-tones are not acceptable.

*In a few cases and because of hair type and cultural status, functional braiding may be appropriate.  However, advice must be sought in advance of styling since it will not be allowed unless there is an agreement with the School in advance.

In addition, students with long hair must ensure it does not obscure the face and is kept tidy at all times.  Students will be requested to tie hair back for all practical subjects, this should be done with a plain hair band (no other hair accessories are permitted).  Boys should attend the School clean shaven.


 Make-up must not be worn and will be confiscated if found

  • No nail polish or false nails
  • Students will be required to remove any make up worn in School.
