Piercings

Please remember that students may only wear one silver or gold stud in each ear lobe. No other piercing is permitted in school. If you allow your son or daughter to have additional piercings, please arrange for these to be done at the start of the school summer holidays so that there is no need for retainers when they return to school in September. No piercings that require retainers should be undertaken at any other time of the school year, as they will not be permitted.

Jewellery, Make-up and Hair

The only permitted items of jewellery are:

  • A watch
  • ONE stud in each ear lobe
  • The wearing of any other jewellery, including retainers and wrist bangles either by girls or boys is not permitted. The only badges that may be worn are those issued by the school.

The following items are not allowed in school:

  • knives and other weapons
  • aerosol sprays
  • tippex and solvents
  • chewing gum
  • cigarettes, tobacco and other smoking paraphernalia
  • E Cigarettes and vaping equipment
  • abusive substances (e.g. alcohol, drugs)

Students are also advised not to bring cash or valuable possessions into school, as we cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage.

Mobile Phones, iPods, MP3 Players etc. may only be used in lessons at the request of the teacher , and only when the teacher is confident that their use will enhance learning.  Headphones should not be visible.

At all other times, such equipment, if brought into school, should be kept in the students' school bag. Cover teachers will only allow students to use such equipment if the work set by the normal teacher states expressly that their use is acceptable. If such equipment is used without permission it will be confiscated and parents or carers will be required to collect the item from Student Services.

We advise and prefer that these valuable items are not brought into school.
