College Uniform

We expect all students to wear full uniform as listed below and hand the responsibility to them to ensure that this is the case. As well as creating a smart impression and sense of pride, school uniform plays an important part in helping to safeguard the student in college. If, on any occasion, a student comes to school wearing incorrect school uniform, they should report to their tutor or SWC with a note from their parents to explain why. Clear uniform protocols are in place and sanctions will be applied for those that do not conform. We expect all our parents to be supportive of these protocols.
