Students are expected to arrive in school and to leave the premises in full school uniform, and students who come to school without the correct uniform will not be permitted to attend lessons, and may be sent home to change or asked to wear spare school uniform. The school is responsible for determining what is acceptable uniform and what is not. Students will also be given a 30 minute detention to be completed after-school in that day.
