By requiring students to wear the school uniform, it is intended to develop their sense of loyalty to the community of which they are members, and to encourage them to take a pride in their appearance. Our uniform is designed to reflect business wear and to reinforce to our students the importance of having high standards and making a good first impression.

Students will be expected to wear the school blazer and house tie and be of smart and sensible appearance at all times. Individual fashion statements such as extreme hair styles or colours, designer shirts, trainers and decorated footwear are not permitted. No decorative attachments are to be worn in the hair. Hair bands must be plain black or white with a maximum of 50mm width. Tram-lines, mohicans or other shaved shapes in the hair and ‘bar codes’ in eyebrows are not permitted. Make-up and nail varnish or nail extensions must not be worn at any time. Tinted or cosmetic contact lenses and decorative dental wear are not permitted nor are bandannas, hoods, caps or hats.

Students are expected to wear full school uniform on the way to and from The Warren School. Jewellery and other forbidden items will be confiscated and only returned at the end of each half term. Post 16 students will be expected to dress appropriately and to set an example to the younger students.

A detailed list of uniform requirements can be found in every student’s Planner
