Be Yourself

Students should look smart, presentable and ready-to-work, or in their case, study!  Clothes and shoes must be clean, tidy, in good repair and appropriate for work.  All clothes should be machine washable and suitable for tumble drying.

Students who identify as transgender or gender non-binary are welcome to adhere to the dress code, as appropriate to their identity.

College dress should be worn from Monday to Friday from 08:00 to 16:00, unless the student is participating in sport or it is a mufti day.  Outside these hours, students are invited to relax and change in to more comfortable clothes.

The Principal has the final decision regarding the suitability of all items of dress and general appearance.

College Dress

  • A plain polo shirt with sleeves of appropriate length and a visible collar or a cotton shirt or blouse.
  • Plain, full length long trousers in a dark colour or plain dark skirt, avoiding extremes of length.
  • Dark socks or dark/opaque plain tights.
  • Leather shoes (maximum heel 4 cm), black or brown monocoloured, not above the ankle or trainer style.
  • Plain jumper or cardigan (‘V’ or round neck); no hoods/motifs, zips or pockets.
  • A blazer may be worn if desired.
