We are pleased to announce the election of Louise Crowder and Steve Gregson as Parent Governors with immediate effect. Please click here for further information.
As agreed the governors have reviewed the school dress policy this year. We have considered the main areas raised by parents, students, staff and other members of the community.
The governors have concluded that we will retain the current dress code and a school uniform will not be introduced. There are no plans to revisit this decision for the foreseeable future.

Please note that all visible piercings must be removed for PE lessons. The only exception that can be made is for newly pierced ears which may be taped over in the first 6 weeks for non-contact activities. Thereafter they must be removed. Students are required to provide their own tape.
Students and parents/carers are asked to bear these rules in mind when considering new piercings.
