    Health and Safety

  • Pupils are advised that the wearing of a mouth-guard can in some circumstances offer a measure of protection against mouth/jaw injury, and that a properly fitted mouth-guard will probably offer the best protection.

    Where mouth-guards have NOT been individually fitted by a dentist or dental technician, it is essential that any manufacturers instructions relating to the wearing of the mouth-guard are strictly followed.

    Whatever its origins a mouth-guard must fulfill the following criteria:
  • It needs to fit comfortably but tight.
  • It needs to be easily remove able.
  • It should not impair breathing in any way.
  • In the interest of oral hygiene, it should be made of a substance that can be effectively cleaned.


  • Make-up is not allowed in the lower school-Years 7,8 and 9
  • The use of make-up is not to be encouraged in the upper school-Years 10 & 11
  • When make-up is used discreetly it will be acceptable


  • Students are allowed to wear a watch, necklace and a maximum of one ring per hand. If earrings are to be worn they must be studs (no more than one earring allowed per ear)
  • No badges or brooches are allowed and neither is any form of facial/body piercing.
  • Any unsuitable jewellery will be confiscated and kept in the school safe until collected by a person with parental responsibility
  • Jewellery must be covered for P.E. and handed to the P.E. teacher for safekeeping in a clear plastic envelope with the student’s name written clearly on the outside.
  • If students choose not to follow this advice and loss or damage occurs at this or any other time, to any item, school cannot be held responsible in any way.


  • Students should adhere to the dress code and refrain from cutting their hair in outrageous styles or colours. Hair colours should remain as natural as possible.
  • Failure to comply with the dress code will result in disciplinary action being taken by the school.

 Other Items

  • Mobile phones, iPads, radios and computer games.
  • The school strongly advises students NOT to bring such items to school and as with jewellery; we cannot be held responsible for loss or damage.
