We believe that our school uniform and dress code should reflect the standards and ethos of The English College. We have clear uniform and dress code guidelines, which all students are expected to conform to. Students need to be aware of our expectations and we would ask parents to insist that their child meets these expectations when they are wearing their uniform, both at school and outside of school. We will challenge any student whose uniform does not meet our expectations and we reserve the right to ask a student to leave school premises to correct their uniform and/or learn from home until they are able to return to school in the correct uniform.
