DRESS GUIDANCE (March 2017)
We are very proud of our school uniform and expect high standards in personal appearance. Parents should ensure that their daughter has the correct uniform and that it is clean and in good repair. Students must ensure that they have sufficient quantity of each uniform item to wear the correct items every day. A smart personal appearance helps focus students on their work and thereby supports learning.

The only jewellery permitted is a wristwatch and one plain stud may be worn in each ear. No other jewellery is allowed in the interests of safety and security. If students have any other piercings, including nose studs, they will be asked to remove them and this includes retainers. Make up is not allowed. We do not allow nail varnish or false nails on in school. All students are requested to tie their hair up where it is long enough to do so throughout the school day. Hairstyles which the school judge to be extreme (grade 1 or 2, shaved patterns and unnatural colours) will not be allowed.
Headphones need to be provided for Music Lessons (iPod headphones are fine)
Every effort is made to keep track of property, but money is best kept “on the person”. All items brought in should be clearly marked with the owner’s name. Students are encouraged to take full responsibility for their equipment, uniform and personal possessions.
