Other guidance

Appropriate hairstyles are required for all students; extreme styles such as shaved heads, tramlines or razor cuts are not permitted. Hair colours should be natural colours only. The Principal reserves the right to make decisions about hairstyles; if you have any doubt about a style please ask prior to having it cut or dyed.

Only light make-up is permitted: it should be discreet, with no coloured nails.

Jewellery may be worn only in moderation: one necklace; one pair of stud or sleeper earrings (in earlobes only); one discreet ring; one simple bracelet and a watch. All jewellery must be able to be removed for PE.

Facial piercings are not allowed. Stretchers are not allowed. If students have had a stretcher-style piercing, they will need to wear a flesh-coloured stopper. For nose piercings a clear plastic retainer should replace any nose jewellery.
