School uniform is compulsory for Years 7 – 11. All students are expected to wear full school uniform correctly at all times (including to and from school). Whilst much of the uniform can be bought in many high street retailers, the official school blazer, tie and PE kit are ONLY available through our sole preferred supplier.

Our sole preferred supplier is Schoolwear Plus based in Chelmsford:

We would strongly encourage you to attend at the shop for your child to be measured at the earliest opportunity.

Hair Guidance

Hair colour which is not considered to be natural or an extreme colour, e.g. reds, blues and purples, are not permitted.

Students having lines or patterns cut into their hairstyle, e.g. V cuts, are not acceptable. Any shaved hair must be barbers grade two or above and isolated to sides of the head and the nape of the neck. Shaven hair above the tops of the ears is not permitted.

Students with long hair must ensure that this does not impede their vision, cover their face or provide a health and safety risk. They will be required to tie it back where necessary.
