Changing Trends and fashion

From time to time, students will want to respond to the latest fashion by wearing clothes, make up or accessories that are not easily categorised into the above sections. We do have a formal working atmosphere and therefore retain the right to veto any garment or accessory brought into College; these maybe confiscated and returned directly to parents. 

Students attending College without the correct uniform will be provided, whenever possible with loan items for the day which they will be expected to wear to comply with the College policy. 

Please note that the following are regarded as inappropriate:

  • Polo shirts
  • Hooded tops
  • Jeans and cords
  • Shorts

The College uniform can be ordered on line, using the following link
