We would recommend that if your daughter is considering having her ears pierced at the end of Year 6, that you undertake to get this done right at the beginning of the summer holidays. They will be required to remove earrings for PE and swimming lessons. If earrings cannot be removed during the first part of the term, girls should bring with them a small roll of micropore tape to cover the earrings.

Please note Students who travel to College on a motorcycle may continue to wear trousers for the journey and a bright or light-coloured waterproof jacket (so that they are protected and are clearly visible to other motorists.) They should change into their uniform on arrival.
