A maximum of one small ring may be worn on the finger. NB Rings must be removed for PE and Technology lessons, and the school will not accept liability for the loss of jewellery.

Light make-up is permitted but must be applied prior to arriving in school and not applied in school. False nails and eye lashes are not appropriate for school and therefore are not permitted.

Hairstyles must be of a conventional nature. Shaving patterns into the hair or dying hair in unnatural colours is not acceptable.
