Uniform Policy and Personal Appearance

1.  Items marked * must be obtained from the outfitters. Other items can be purchased where you will.

2.  All items of clothing must be marked with student’s name. This helps to ensure rapid return in case of loss. Suitable name tapes can be obtained from the outfitters.

3.  No jewellery except watches may be worn by boys or girls. Coloured contact lenses may not be worn. For safety reasons earrings may not be worn in school. Tattoos, body piercing and jewelled teeth are not allowed.

4.  No nail varnish, false nails or make-up may be used at school. Hair sprays and gel are NOT allowed due to a safety risk when students are in the science labs. Fingernails to be short, neat and clean. Students will be required to remove makeup and nail varnish using wipes provided by school.

5.  Hair styles must be in accordance with standards laid down by the school authorities. No extreme haircut, including ‘V’ cuts, lines or shared styles is allowed. Hair must be one natural colour. Senior boys must be clean-shaven.

6. A hard wearing school bag is required for books/homework, as well as for basic equipment such as pens/biro, pencil ruler, rubber, coloured pencil. This basic equipment MUST be brought to school each day along with any necessary books, kit or equipment for the day’s lessons.

7.  School Bags: School books are very expensive but can become damaged if carried in the same bag as PE/Sports footwear. Students should, therefore, have separate bags for school books and sports attire.

NOTE – Parents are requested to maintain a close check on the condition of their child’s text and exercise books. We ask students to pay for lost or damaged items.

8.  Free School Meal Eligibility: Please contact Bolton Council ‘The One Stop Shop’ to check if you qualify for Free School Meals (01204 33 33 33).

9. Fashions change with such bewildering rapidity that it is not possible to cater for every possibility in print. The school must, therefore, reserve the right to decide what is or is not allowed, both in uniform and general appearance, in cases not catered for by specific rules. It would be advisable, when in doubt, for parents to contact the school before spending money on items which might not be allowed.

10.  If for exceptional reasons, large amounts of money or valuables need to be brought into school, they should be given into the office for safe keeping. However, please note that this is a facility offered to aid security; any teacher providing such a service is not accepting responsibility for the money or valuables. Mobile phones are brought into school entirely at students’ own risk. They should not be used during the school day and should remain turned off. Anyone using a mobile phone during the school day will have it confiscated. On the first occasion of this happening the phone will be returned to the student at the end of the school day. On any subsequent occasion the phone will have to be collected by the Parent/Guardian – it will not be returned to the student.

11. While every effort will be made by normal supervision, discipline and inquiry to safeguard students’ property, the school authorities cannot accept responsibility in the case of damage or loss. Parents may deem it advisable to ensure against such loss with their House Contents Insurance Policy.
