Students organise these at various times during the year in consultation with Mrs. Ralphs.  Money raised is sent to a wide variety of charitable organisations.  They are very popular and well supported.  In order to ensure full regard is taken of health & safety issues as well as the image of the school the following guidelines must be followed:-

  • No skirts shorter than the midpoint between the top of the leg (base of buttocks) and the back of the knee.
  • No bare midriffs.
  • No off the shoulder or string strap tops.
  • No low décolletage – i.e. no visible cleavage.
  • No fishnet or purposely holed tights.
  • No ripped or holed jeans or trousers.
  • No piercings other than ears.
  • No short shorts (hot pants style).
  • No dangerous jewellery e.g. long chains especially if attached to wrists or ankles as well as round neck, necklaces or bracelets with spikes etc.

The description “smart casual” sums up the style of dress acceptable on non-uniform days.
