Uniform All Students: 

We expect all students to wear their uniform with pride, whether they are in school or outside in the community as they travel to and from the school. The Board of Directors devolves the responsibility for maintaining high standards in all things at all times to the Principal and the Director of Academy Excellence and, therefore, should there be any ambiguity over the interpretation of these standards, they will have the final say
