In addition to the standard uniform, please see below for expectations of students’ appearance:

  • Jewellery is restricted to a watch and where ears are pierced, one stud in the lower part of each ear. No other piercings are allowed.


  • Extreme hairstyles and colours are not allowed. This includes colours and coloured streaks in un-natural shades.


  • We accept that some students may wish to wear make-up but this must be natural looking. No coloured lipstick or heavy eye-make up is allowed. False lashes, gel, acrylic or false nails are also not allowed.


  • For those students who repeatedly challenge the uniform and appearance standards, it may become necessary to confiscate items and impose appropriate sanctions.
