Uniform

As a school, we expect pupils to conform to our uniform requirements.

All items can be purchased from Coes, 22 Norwich Road, Ipswich, who will be present to sell school uniform at the new intake evening in July.  Identical garments from other outfitters are acceptable except for certain items (the school skirt, navy v-neck pullover and tie, and the PE kit). The pullover and tie may be ordered through the school.

Acceptable fabric for trousers is a woven polyester (65%) and viscose (35%) mix

 

If the school deems anything a pupil is wearing is not acceptable for school, it reserves the right to insist the pupil does not wear such items.

Jewellery and Make-up:

Ear loops, hooks and large ear rings are not suitable for school.  Movement around the school at times becomes congested and such articles of jewellery become a safety hazard.  For this reason, we ask students to confine themselves to one stud in each ear and other forms of jewellery are not acceptable.  The school reserves the right to insist that pupils remove make-up including nail varnish.

 

Hairstyles:

Extreme hairstyles are likely to be a distraction and for this reason we expect students to confine themselves to conventional styles.

Coats:

Should not be worn in the building but should be left in lockers or carried, preferably in a bag.
