Warm weather advice
Blazers are not required for the rest of term, however other uniform expectations must be adhered to. There can be no alternative to the school blazer, so no hoodies, cardigans, jackets or tops are acceptable. Ties are required although students may be given the option in school to remove these.
We suggest that students bring water bottles that can be refilled from the water fountain before school, at break or at lunchtime. Reusable water bottles can be purchased from Student Services for £1.25 each.
Hats are optional but must not be worn indoors and must not have any slogans or provocative language/inappropriate images on them. If your child spends their social time outside, please ensure they take care in the sun, applying sunscreen when required.
Thursday is Sports Day and most students will be spending the afternoon outdoors. Please make sure they take sensible precautions in the warm weather and enjoy the sunshine. Ice lollies will be sold by Sixth Form students raising money for the Camps International Peru trip for 50p each.
