Authorised ties: The School takes pride in its wide range of ties. The award of a tie can be a recognition of achievement and house ties encourage a sense of identity. All boys are entitled to wear a tie for their day or boarding house, but may become entitled to other ties as a scholar, member of a particular society, orchestra or activity, or may be awarded one as a prize or reward, or for sports colours, or on entry to the Sixth Form.

Scarves: The only patterned scarves permitted are the official school scarf or Sixth Form scarf; plain dark scarves are also acceptable.

Raincoats or overcoats: Coats should be plain navy blue or black and the same length or longer than the blazer, and should not carry conspicuous logos or colours.

Dress code for all years

Boys should observe the following guidelines:

  • Clothes must be smart, clean and well cared for.
  • Hair must be cut so that it does not lie on the collar nor is excessively close-shaven. Hair must look smart, and must not appear to be attention seeking. Bleaches or dyes that are in blatant contrast to a boy’s natural colour are not permitted.
  • No ear-rings, bracelets, studs, chains, necklaces or rings are permitted (other than a single signet ring in the Sixth Form).
  • The wearing of coloured T-shirts under school shirts, or T-shirts which are visible at the collar is not permitted.
  • White shirts should be worn on all formal occasions.
  • Shirts should be tucked in at the waist, with top buttons done up and ties worn correctly.
  • Hats or caps should not be worn.
  • Arrangements for summer dress will be announced as appropriate.

The School reserves the right to exercise its discretion over any aspect of a boy’s appearance.
