The Head of Sixth Form is the ultimate arbiter of what is acceptable for uniforms. The Head of Sixth Form also reserves the right to use discretion on all aspects of appearance that lie outside of this policy.

Failure to comply will result in appropriate sanctions as outlined in this policy and the behaviour for learning policy.

The School will consider carefully any request that is made to vary this policy to meet the needs of any individual pupil to accommodate their religion or belief or because of temporary or permanent medical conditions. Such requests should be made in writing to the Headmaster giving at least 6 weeks-notice where possible. Trinity school wishes to ensure that its Uniform Policy ensures:

  • Health and Safety and in particular requirements with regards to jewellery and hairstyles
  • Security – one simple uniform worn by all pupils makes it easier for intruders to be identified
  • Teaching and Learning is not adversely impacted and that learning is promoted between groups who all feel part of the school identity
  • That pupils are protected from external pressures to wear clothing they would not otherwise choose to adopt, protecting them from harassment
  • That a strong cohesive school identity is in place that supports high standards and a sense of identity amongst pupils.
