BfL Sanctions

The very high standards that we expect for students will be supported by this uniform.  Most of our students rise to the challenges we set for them, but to support the uniform looking very smart, there will be BfL consequences attached for not wearing it properly. 

A C3 will be issued for having a top button undone, wearing a tie incorrectly or having a shirt untucked.  A C3 will also be issued if a student is not wearing their blazer around school.

If a student arrives at school in the incorrect uniform, they will be asked to change into spare uniform held at school.  If they refuse to borrow this, a student may be asked to go home to change. 

Only a medical note from a doctor will be acceptable for wearing incorrect shoes.

Sixth Form

In order to provide a clear identity and a business-like approach within the Sixth Form, there are strict dress and appearance regulations for all students. We believe that high standards of personal appearance equate to high standards in all other areas. An approach to dress code has been evolved in full collaboration with students. Appropriate action will be taken, in the interest of all students, if these standards are not maintained.

Jewellery and make up may be worn discreetly and in a ‘business like’ manner and there should be no body or facial piercings other than in the ears. There should be no tattoos. Where jewellery is worn it should pose absolutely no health and safety risk. Hairstyles should not be extreme.
