We believe that all students should attend College smartly dressed in a distinctive way and we expect all our students to correctly wear clothes and shoes specified in our Uniform Policy.

The College approved dress code, as detailed in the College Uniform Policy, should be followed at all times when in College or when representing the College.   Adhering to a smart dress code symbolises good standards and, in preparing young people for the world of work, allows them to recognise the need for appropriate dress.

Girls Uniform – other items

Trousers Black, full length and tailored. No studs, patched pockets, denim or split seams

Pullover (Optional) Black, wool type v-neck only (no sweatshirts)

Outer garment Dark coloured anorak or coat. No leather or denim

The main elements of appropriate footwear:
