We are an 11-16 school. On the grounds of Child Protection and Health and Safety, we are obliged to make the following points regarding girls’ uniform:

We will be asking girls to remove make-up in line with our policy on uniform. As a rule of thumb, no make-up whatsoever is permitted in theJuniorSchool. In Year 12 only, Mrs Gallagher (Head of Key Stage 4) decides on acceptable levels – if make-up is very obvious then it must be removed. This includes facial make-up and nail varnish, although clear nail varnish may be applied.

Unacceptably short skirts may not be worn. A skirt should be no more than one inch above the knee. Girls persistently failing to comply with the regulation face being sent home from school to get changed or being removed from class to study in isolation until an acceptable uniform is worn.

School uniform promotes a sense of pride in the school community, self-discipline and is an excellent preparation for the world of work. I know that we can count on your full support in ensuring that all of our students are smartly turned out and can represent their school and their families in the best possible way.

Should you have any concerns or queries regarding uniform, please contact your child’s Form Teacher in the first instance. You may also contact Mr McDermott who is Acting Head of Key Stage 3 (Years 8-10) and Mrs Gallagher who is Head of Key Stage 4 (Years 11-12).
