The Governors and all members of staff consider personal appearance of the greatest importance. All pupils are expected to be in full uniform, both at school and on the way to and from school. It is the responsibility of all parents to ensure that their son arrives at school smartly dressed in full uniform and with the correct equipment.
It is not possible to address all permutations of changing fashion in our uniform policy. We therefore ask that students and parents/carers work with us in relation to the “spirit” of the policy. The expectations of the uniform policy are that students’ uniform, haircut and shoes reflect the dress code for a conservative office work environment. By this, we ask that students are dressed smartly with their ties worn in a manner that covers the buttons of their shirts, that they wear traditional shoes and have a traditional, conservative haircut.
Years 7 – 11

- Coombe tie. This should be tied closely to the collar, covering the collar button, which should be secured.

Further Uniform can be purchased from Bentalls, Kingston.
Haircuts and hairstyles must be of a conservative style and cut to a uniform and moderate length, without creating a crop, Mohican or layered effect. There should be no lines or patterns cut into the hair. Naturally curly or similar types of hair must also be of moderate length.
If pupils are not dressed in correct school uniform they must produce a dated note from their parents/carer explaining why. This note should be presented to their form tutor who will issue them with a green uniform slip. If a pupil arrives without this note from their parent/carer, uniform will be loaned to them from the Head of Year room.
Refusal to co-operate in wearing uniform will result in a pupil being withdrawn from the school community and parents/carer contacted.
Having the right equipment for school every day helps to ensure lessons start smoothly. This allows learning to take place, which in turn, supports pupil progress.
