Parents are advised that, on the grounds of health, safety and security, pupils are not allowed to wear jewellery at school, except:

•  one plain small gold or silver, round stud with no design or decoration worn at the bottom of each ear lobe.

Tattoos and other piercings are not allowed.

Hairstyles should be neat and tidy without extremes of style or design. Hair colours should be natural. Hair shorter than a number (grade) 2, shaved or partly shaved heads and hair braided with beads or decorations is not allowed.

Hair restraints may be worn in black or white or in a colour of the House of the pupil.

Hairstyles & Make-up

Hairstyles for all pupils are expected to be neat and tidy, suitable for school and without extremes of style, colour or length.  Hair restraints should be plain white or black material or in the appropriate House colour – for safety reasons, metal or plastic slides, clips, beads or bands are not allowed.  Obvious hair dyes, a large amount of plaits or very short haircuts are not suitable for school.

If parents are unsure about a planned hairstyle for their child, they should consult with the school via the Head of Year or Senior Staff before making a decision.  Any issues regarding religious or cultural reasons for a mode of dress or hairstyle should be raised with the school.

Makeup is not allowed, neither is nail varnish.  Pupils will be told to remove makeup and nail varnish if worn to school.
