Below is a detailed explanation of the uniform requirements which we expect all students in Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 to follow.

Trousers

In the first instance, and in order to guarantee that your son/daughter arrives at college in the correct trousers, I would encourage you to purchase the trousers from our preferred supplier Schoolware Solutions.

We appreciate that there are a vast array of styles so have drawn up some additional guidance in order that you can help to support us in ensuring your son/daughter is adhering to our uniform policy.

Should you choose to purchase them from another retailer other than our recommended supplier then please ensure the following:- 

Trousers should be plain grey 

We will not allow the following:-

Jeans, denim trousers, jeggings, leggings, trousers which are tight to the thigh, calf, or leg, trousers that do not cover the ankle, cords.

We expect all students to comply with our requirements and the Leadership Team at the College will determine what is and what is not acceptable should there be still be any confusion.

Skirts are to be knee length and of a traditional style. We will not allow the following:-
