Throughout the year, students will have some opportunities to wear non-school uniform. We will issue further guidelines for this, but request that students dress sensibly and appropriately at all times.

We ask parents to support the College uniform and ensure that their daughter is in the correct uniform every day. The College reserves the right to decide on the suitability of any items of clothing. Should you be unsure about anything, we urge you to contact us before purchasing.

Please note, the ‘unacceptable’ list is not exhaustive, and we expect parents to support the spirit of the College Uniform. We would like our students to look business like and ready for learning. This guide does not attempt to deal with every aspect of clothing - what it is offering is a guide to a common-sense approach to dress, if you are unsure about any items of clothing please contact us prior to purchasing.
