Under no circumstances must a student dye, colour, streak or highlight their hair with an unnatural colour. Nails should be pale and discreet. No jewellery should be worn except a wrist watch. One set of small stud earrings are allowed, other visible piercings are not allowed. Discreet make up is only allowed for KS4 students. Extreme piercings are not allowed.
