Hair should be neat and tidy and cut in a conventional style. Dyed hair is not permitted. For hygiene reasons children with long hair should have it tied up.

Helpful Hints:

  • Elasticated waistbands trousers are easier for small children to manage than buttons and belts.
  • Velcro runners are easier than lace ups, until your children can tie their own laces.
  • Please label all clothing, bags and lunch boxes, as most are identical.
