  • No excessive make-up.

  • No nail varnish or gel nails.

  • No rings, necklaces, bracelets or other jewellery except for one single, plain ear stud in each ear as specified above. 

  • Students who use henna in their cultural celebrations should avoid applying it to their nails as it looks like nail varnish and cannot be removed. Henna patterns on hands, which fade quite quickly, are acceptable.

  • No hoodies or other non-uniform jumpers.
