May I take this opportunity to remind you that school uniform is an important standard at The Castle and we would appreciate if you made sure that trousers, skirts and shoes meet that standard – that is no Lycra skirts or trousers, or jeans, or anything stretchy or clingy. Skirts must be purchased from the school and worn on the knee and and shoes must be black leather or leather-type (please see our ‘suitable footwear’ page for more specific guidance and clarity, with examples of what is and is not acceptable.
A reminder also, all students must wear either PE shorts, or skorts if they prefer, purchased from the school. Refusal to wear uniform correctly is defiance of school rules and will be sanctioned accordingly. If you have any trouble trying to persuade your teenager that it is not the case that 'everyone else wears them’, please do not hesitate in giving us a call. We are always happy to help however we can.
