Personal Appearance:

Hair styles. Should be neat and conventional. Eccentric styles and hair colours that are not within the realm of the ‘natural’ palate are not acceptable. For Health and Safety reasons, students should be ready to tie back long hair. Only plain hair accessories may be worn.

Facial hair. Students in Year 10 and below should be clean shaven. Students in Year 11 and the Sixth Form should keep facial hair groomed and professional.

Body piercing and tattoos. Any form of visible body piercing or tattooing beyond the single stud per ear mentioned above is not allowed.

Jewellery. A wristwatch may be worn.

Ear piercings. A maximum of one small plain stud per ear lobe may be worn.

All jewellery including ear studs must be removed for all PE and Games lessons and practical lessons such as Food & Nutrition and, during such lessons will remain the responsibility of the student. Any piercings which take place during the school holidays must be healed by the time students return to school in order that they can be removed.

No other jewellery may be worn.

Make up. Make up which may be worn by students in Year 9 or above includes clear, black or brown mascara, lip balm, concealer and natural foundation. Application must be subtle and adhere to a conservative, natural and professional look. Fake tan is not appropriate for students in school.

Nail varnish. Nail varnish, false or acrylic nails may not be worn.

Students will be asked to remove nail varnish and make up using products supplied by the School if they ignore this advice.

The School reserves the right to ask that a student be taken home and not returned to School until the offending contravention of the rules is removed.
