Optional Summer Uniform (from 6th June until 22nd July 2016)
Dear Parents and Carers
In the same way as we have done for the last two years we will be allowing an optional summer uniform, during the second half of this term, when the hotter weather can make wearing cotton shirts, ties and blazers uncomfortable.
Students will therefore have the option to wear a light blue cotton polo shirt in place of their normal cotton shirt and tie. All other uniform rules will remain the same and students will still be expected to wear their blazers to school.
If the weather becomes very hot we will allow students to leave their blazers in their bags or lockers during the school day.
We hope that this pragmatic approach will allow students to remain smart and comfortable during the second half of the summer term.
If your child would like to wear a light blue cotton polo shirt instead of their cotton blouse/shirt and tie, we would appreciate your support in ensuring the following:
- That they do not do so until after the May half term holiday
- That they continue to wear their blazer to school every day
- That all other elements of their uniform remain within our rule (shoes, trousers, skirts, hair and make-up etc.)
- That their polo shirts are plain light blue without logos of any kind and are purchased from a school wear range. Follow the links below to see 2 examples of what we would require:
If you have any questions or concerns about this matter please do not hesitate to contact the school.
Many thanks for your continued support
