Great importance is attached to the wearing of school uniform (Years 7-11) and uniform dress in the Sixth Form, which are regarded as the keynote to good order in the school. Students are not normally allowed to wear training shoes except at break or lunch time, nor for travel to or from school.  Students who have permission not to wear complete school uniform are to carry a note signed by their Form Tutor.

The School Uniform Policy details uniform requirements for students in Years 7 - 11. The uniform suppliers are:

131-135 Victoria Street
St Albans, AL1 3XS

DJ Uniforms

The Sixth Form Dress Code is available in the section: Life in the Sixth Form.
