Our pupils enjoy wearing their school uniform and we feel that wearing this does help to develop both a sense of personal pride and togetherness.
- •School sweatshirt or cardigan (black)
- •White polo shirt or blouse.
- •Grey (or dark coloured) skirt or trousers.
- •White polo shirt, with badge on or without
- •P.E. T-shirt, book bag and P.E. bag in house colours.
All items are now available to purchase from Promenade T-Shirts.
During the summer term parents may wish the girls to wear a lemon/yellow checked dress.
Shoes should be sensible, black, stout leather type lace ups or T-bars. Fancy heels, platforms or slip-ons are not suitable on safety grounds. Trainers (including black ones) are not school uniform.
Items of clothing, because of their similarity, should be marked with a special name tape or at least with ball-point on the manufacturers label.
Jewellery (other than watches) is not permitted. Earrings, if worn, should be simple plain studs. Make-up and nail varnish are not to be used. Necklaces are a hazard in school and should not be worn. Extreme hair styles, including mohicans, dyed hair, shaved heads, lines/patterns shaved into the hair are not permitted. Experience has shown us that children having extreme hair styles can be the victims of ridicule or bullying by others, as well as causing a distraction to learning. The definition of an “extreme hair style” is at the definition of the head teacher.
Please note the following information, circulated to all schools by the Department of Education, Sport and Culture:
“Parents are advised that if children bring valuable property to school, neither the Department or the teachers or other employees of the Department will be responsible for any loss or damage to such property.”
Mobile telephones are not needed in school. On the rare occasion that a child needs to bring one in to school then the phone must be given to the school secretary for the day and they will be kept safe in the office.

Please note that the Swimming Pool rules are as follows:
(a) No jewellery is allowed.

All of the children are allocated to one of the four Houses,which are named after Manx Kings, to help foster a feeling of belonging to a team. Brothers and sisters are placed in the same team to avoid any friendly family disputes. Throughout the year competitions will be held for sporting and academic awards.
