GUIDELINES FOR WEARING THE UNIFORM The proper wearing of and caring for the uniform is expected at all times since it reflects on the individual and the School community, as well as on the home. Only regulation uniform items should be worn. Eccentric alterations will not be tolerated. All items should be clearly marked with the pupil's name. The soles of white gym shoes must be indoor clean - i.e. without stones or abrasive materials which could damage the expensive gym or games hall floors. If the shoes might cause damage, pupils will be asked to remove them for the lesson, and ensure they are cleaned for the next teaching session. Girls in S3 to S6 may wear discrete make up to include only the following: black or brown mascara, black or brown eyeliner, and foundation or concealer chosen to match
the natural skin colour. Varnish to match the natural nail colour may also be worn. No other make-up is allowed. S1 and S2 girls may wear make-up but only with the express permission of their parents and it must conform to the requirements given above. No jewellery may be worn with the exception of: school badges a single pair of stud ear-rings (girls only) one plain ring, worn on a finger, which must be removed or taped over for Games or PE. A watch, but no other adornment, on the wrist. It is not sensible for any of the above items to be expensive.
In addition Ties should be worn with the knot covering the top button of the shirt. Top buttons of shirts should be fastened. Tie knots should be a regular size and not overly large, with the tie at a normal length. Shirts should be fully tucked in and not just at the front. Blazers should be worn at all times until otherwise directed. Permission to remove a blazer for the duration of a lesson should be sought from the subject teacher Boys should be clean shaven. There should be no extremes of hairstyle.
PROPERTY All personal property must be clearly marked with the pupilâ€™s name. Money or valuable items must never be left in locker rooms/changing rooms, desks or bags. It is inadvisable for pupils to carry money beyond daily subsistence needs. Pupils are discouraged from bringing personal property not required for daily lessons. Pupils should hand over valuable personal items/money to staff for safe keeping at games or PE lessons. School books must be protected with brown paper covers and clearly marked with the pupilâ€™s name. Books not returned at the end of the session, or books returned in a badly damaged condition, will be paid for in full.
