Outdoor uniform is an integral part of the uniform and must be worn by all girls up to and including Year 11. The uniform is the public face of the school. It acts as both a unifying element and a point of recognition, whilst removing from parents the financial burden of providing non- uniform clothes. Girls who defy the school by disregarding the school uniform regulations may be sent home. As appearance is important, hair should not be worn over the eyes and hair styles which the school judge to be extreme will not be allowed..

All girls are expected to wear the correct uniform and to wear it well. The school uniform is kept as simple and inexpensive as possible. If there are any special temporary difficulties please let the Deputy Head, Miss Randell know. All items of uniform should be clearly marked with the owner’s name. Girls may wear a watch and one small set of plain gold or silver studs in the ears. No other jewellery or make-up is allowed. Coloured nail varnish is inappropriate with the school uniform and is therefore not permitted. Nail extensions represent a Health & Safety risk in a number of practical lessons and for this reason are not allowed.
