Girls' uniform this year has looked better than ever so may I first sincerely thank all of you who have supported these very high expectations and ensured that your daughter's uniform and personal appearance have been nothing short of outstanding throughout the school year.
To make sure that expectations and standards are absolutely clear from Day 1 in September and beyond for Academic Year 2016 - 2017 please see the guidance below.
Guidance has been shared with your daughter in school during the last week of term but should you have any queries, please contact your daughter's Head of Year or myself. Please note that girls who are not in correct uniform will not be allowed into lessons until matters are resolved.
I thank you once again for your continued support.
