Back to School Information

Summer Uniform

School uniform is to be worn correctly by all day boys at School and when travelling to or from School. There are some special regulations for boarders.

When ties are worn the collar button must be done up. Shirts need to be tucked in properly. All clothing must be marked with the boy's name. Name tapes may be ordered through the Uniform Shop.

Hair should be neat, tidy, clean and brushed. It must be an even cut over the head with a minimum length Number 3. Hair should not fall over the collar, eyes or ears and is to be the natural colour (no added colours or dyes). If product, hair ties or head bands are required to keep hair from falling across the ears or face, the hair is too long. Boys must be clean-shaven.

No jewellery, other than a wrist watch or medic alert bracelet, is to be worn.

No tattoos of any kind are permitted.

Summer uniform must be worn in Summer Term and Spring Term. Winter uniform must be worn in Autumn Term and Winter Term. Boys who have earned a Colours or Honours tie may wear this tie instead of a House tie on Fridays. All boys will need to possess both a School tie and a House tie which are both obtained only from the Uniform Shop.

Boys who have Physical Education in Period 6 may wear their sport uniform home at the end of the school day.

Occasionally the School will have a Free Dress Day when boys will be permitted to wear casual clothing. This is usually run as a fund-raising exercise. On these days, clothing must be clean and neat without offensive wording, closed in shoes must be worn and the rules on jewellery remain unchanged.

House Braid

So that each boy may be identified by his House when ties are not being worn, boys wear appropriately coloured braid on the pocket of Summer uniform shirts. Strips of braid in House colours are available from the Uniform Shop. The braid should be stitched along the top edge of the pocket.

Senior School Photo Day

Senior School individual student photos will be taken on Tuesday 5 February 2019 with an opportunity for catch up photos on Friday 8 February 2019.

Parents may order photos online from Tuesday 5 February 2019. Orders placed by Tuesday 12 March 2019 will be delivered to the school and distributed via House Heads. Orders may be placed for the remainder of the current year, however, these will not be delivered to the school and a late order fee will apply.
