GENERAL RULES ABOUT APPEARANCE
When wearing the Saint Martin’s uniform, whether in school or out, students are representing the academy and therefore are expected to wear it smartly and with pride. When wearing our uniform out of school students are also expected to maintain the highest standards of behaviour and politeness.
All pupils are expected to adhere to the uniform rules and we expect all parents who choose to send their children to Saint Martin’s to do like-wise.
Blouses and shirts must be tucked in at all times. Ties done up properly. Blazers worn always unless permission is given to remove. Jumpers are optional especially in hot weather.
Jewellery of any description may not be worn in school, including earrings. This rule applies to girls and boys. If any students have their ears pierced this must be done at the beginning of the summer holidays in order allow healing time as no exceptions will be made to the earring rule. Stretchers should not be worn even in holiday time as the holes they produce will be an obvious health and safety issue when in school. Watches may be worn. Please note that mobile phones are not permitted, click here for information.
Extremes/unconventional hairstyles including unnatural colours and extreme differences between lengths are not permitted, no hair/eyebrow tram marks and nothing less than a No 2 haircut is permissible. The Principal will be the final arbiter of what counts as ‘extreme’.
No make-up is allowed. The tinting of eye brows and eye lashes or false eye lashes etc are also not allowed. False nails or nail varnish must not be worn in the Academy. If make-up or nail varnish is used students will be asked to remove them. Acrylic or gel nails are not allowed for health and safety reasons.
