Shirts are to be tucked in; socks are to be pulled up; heel straps in place. Where a situation arises concerning a student’s uniform, written requests for temporary wearing of non-regulation items must be referred to a Dean or Deputy Headmaster.

Students are to be clean-shaven at all times while representing the school.

The following are not to be brought on to the school grounds:

In the event of the absence exceeding 2 days, the school should be informed whilst the student is absent from school.

No responsibility can be accepted for unmarked property. Boys losing or finding lost property should in the first instance report to Student Services.
