Hair Styles

We have adopted the Halo code to celebrate individuality and identity, however, extreme changes of hair colour which are not “natural” are not permitted.

Make-Up and Nails

  • False nail extensions are permitted as long as they appear natural and of a reasonable length
  • Nail varnish if worn must be of a natural discreet colour
  • If worn make up must be discreet and natural looking
  • False eyelashes if worn must also be discreet and natural looking


We expect every student to be prepared for every school day. Please ensure you have the basic items and equipment for every lesson:

  • Pen
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Rubber
  • Sharpener
  • Student Planner

In order to keep books, equipment and PE kit neat and safe, students should have a suitable bag to carry their belongings. We recommend a sturdy backpack, with a secure fastening, which has their name clearly labelled.

Students will be given an exercise book or folder for each subject. If the student loses or willingly damages any equipment provided for them, they will be expected to pay for a replacement.
