General matters

Make up

The school discourages the wearing of any make up including nail varnish, as it is contrary to the business like values the School aims to promote. If make up is worn, then it must be of a very discrete nature. Acrylic nails should not be worn at any time.

Hair styles

For Health and Safety reasons, and to support the general business like values of the School, the School expects students to have reasonable hairstyles and colours. If the Principal, or a member of staff acting for the principal, considers a student’s hair style to be unreasonable, then the student will be asked to rectify the matter.

School bags

All students should bring a ‘School Bag’ to school every day. A ‘School Bag’ is defined by the School as a bag which is suitable to carry books of up to A4 size, basic equipment and kit for other subjects. Typically, students carry small waterproof rucksacks.

Jewellery

The School has agreed that one small ear stud may be worn in each ear. Apart from this, for Health and Safety reasons and to promote the general business like values of the school, no jewellery may be worn. This includes rings, neck chains and facial piercing such as nose and lip studs.
