School Uniform

Dress Guidance

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.
