Uniform code - effective January 2024 

Boys in years 7 to 11 are required to wear school uniform in accordance with the guidance in our behaviour policy (section 9). 

Sixth form students must abide by the LaSWAP dress code. 

Research demonstrates that school uniform:  

  • Promotes a sense of community, identity and pride within a school setting  

  • Supports the security and welfare of all students  

  • Discourages unnecessary and expensive competition in matters of dress  

  • Prepares students for the world of work 

This uniform code has been designed with these purposes in mind and in response to feedback from students and families.

A weatherproof coat or anorak.  Outside coats may not be worn in the school building.  Leather or denim jackets are not acceptable. 


A good bag is essential and must be suitable for carrying books securely and without damage. 


Students are allowed to wear one single studded earring in each ear. This must be plain metal and no bigger than the wearer’s natural ear lobe. No other jewellery must be worn, and all must be removed for PE or other practical lessons at the teacher’s instruction. 

In addition to other items, it is optional for students to wear a jumper – v neck, long sleeves and in a knitted style (not sweatshirt material). This can be navy blue, black or grey. 

Adjustments for warm weather 

  • Throughout the final half term (June and July), students have the option to not bring or wear their blazer or jumper to school. 

  • If the weather is exceptionally or unseasonably warm, further adjustments to the uniform may be made at the discretion of the headteacher as part of a risk assessment for hot weather.  This will not involve families buying additional items of clothing. 

If a student arrives at school without correct uniform the school will take one of the following approaches:  

  • Provide correct uniform for the student to wear, from a stock of clean supplies.  

  • Ask the child to return home to correct their uniform, either prior to the school day starting or with permission from the parent/carer  

  • Provide a uniform card for the student to use during the course of the day.

Defiance of these instructions will be dealt with in accordance with our behaviour policy. 

Common uniform issues  

We ask all parents and carers to support the school by keeping strictly to the prescribed uniform list. The following are not part of the school uniform and must not be worn:  

  • Tracksuit tops  

  • Sweatshirts or hooded tops, with or without a zip  

  • Visible tops worn underneath the school shirt  

  • Headwear 

  • Jewellery, other than single studded earrings  

  • Patterns shaved or cut into hair  

Students will be asked to remove these items when in school. Items may be confiscated and returned at a later date.
