We wish to make clear to all our students (and parents) that the following list of uniform items is intended to be exactly that – uniform. It does not include fashion or designer items, which are not acceptable.
|Blazers||Specialist Item – D Luke Premium Navy Blue Boy’s or Girl’s Blazer|
|Trousers||Black or dark charcoal grey conventional school type trousers are standard uniform for all students. Jeans, jogging bottoms, cargo trousers, leggings or other skin tight trousers in whatever colour or material are not permitted.|
|Skirt||Girls may choose to wear a skirt instead of trousers. Plain black and should be no less than 20” in length. (Smaller waist skirt may be shorter).|
|Shirts||White. These should be of conventional style with either short or long sleeves and should be worn tucked in. Girls may wear an open neck revere collar blouse with house pin or a conventional shirt and house tie.|
|Jumper||Plain navy blue V neck jumper may be worn under a blazer but not instead of a blazer.|
|House Pin||Specialist Item – A house colour pin badge must be worn with the girls’ blouse.|

Styles where lines or shapes are cut into the hair, or where parts of the head are shaved, are not acceptable. Hair which has been dyed or streaked with unnatural colours (where there are two or more distinct colours that form an obvious contrast) is not permitted. Long hair worn by boys or girls needs to be tied back in all practical lessons.|
