Uniform


The aim of the dress code is to encourage students to look professional in order for them to be able to show they are focussed, motivated and should be treated with respect.


All students should respect the cultural standards and expectations of the school. Clothes need to look clean, ironed and presentable. As a principle, if students are unsure about the suitability of an item of clothing, they shouldn’t wear it. Shirts MUST be tucked in at all times.

USB Flash Drive

 

A USB flash drive is a data storage device. As the school begins to adopt a more modern approach to learning and teaching, we would like all students to have their own flash drive available for lessons and homework. Please could parents or guardians purchase one as part of the necessary equipment needed for school. We recommend that students wear these devices around their necks on a lanyard and that the capacity is at least 16GB.
