Year 7 - 11 uniform
School uniform is worn by all students from Years 7 to 11 and we expect all students to maintain the highest possible standard of appearance and to wear their uniform with pride. Warnings and subsequent detentions will be given to those who do not meet the required standard of uniform.
A uniform checklist can be found on the second page of our Uniform Policy.
