Dress Code

  • Students are not allowed to wear makeup, nail varnish, acrylic nails or jewellery to school at any time. One pair of plain gold studs for girls only to be worn in the lobes.  No piercings in any other part of the ear are permitted.  These must be removed for PE.
  • In order to complement the smart school uniform we insist that students’ hair is smart in appearance and that students do not have shaved/razored hair styles or lines/patterns shaved into the hair. Extreme changes of hair colour are also not permitted. The final decision as to whether a particular haircut/style is appropriate is at the discretion of senior staff.

We hope that all students will co-operate fully with the above dress code. The final decision as to whether a student’s appearance is appropriate or not rests with the school.

Sports Kit

Students must bring their PE kit to every PE lesson, even if they have a note, as the PE staff will involve students in refereeing, scoring or to analyse the performance of other students. Students will be expected to wear the PE kit provided if they fail to bring their own. All PE kit is available from Clive Mark and will carry the Bishop Challoner School crest. Clive Mark will also produce a rain jacket (with school crest) that may also be purchased and worn outdoors when the weather is poor.

Personal Equipment

Students require all the usual writing materials: pen, pencil, rubber, ruler etc. We strongly recommend that students use a memory stick for backing up their computer files. A strong school bag is essential to keep equipment and books in good condition.
