  • No extremes of haircut or hair-fashion will be allowed e.g. tramlines or patterns shaved into the hair, stripes of contrasting colour
  • Hair should not obscure the face as this interferes with learning
  • If hair is dyed it should be a natural hair colour e.g. blonde, brown, black
  • In practical lessons such as Technology, Science, P.E, Art, long hair must be tied back for safety reasons
  • Eyebrows should not be shaved

Parents who are unsure of these guidelines should consult with the Achievement Co-ordinator before the pupil has the haircut or hairstyle.
