It is requested that parents please discuss the following school rules with their son and ensure that he complies with them:

  • Earrings, piercings and excessively modish hair styles are not permitted in any year. Hair is considered excessively modish if any patterns or lines are cut into the hairstyle. Hair should not be trimmed to any lower than a 3.
  • Mobile phones are allowed but should be switched off in school at all times. Any mobile phone or electronic equipment used in lesson time or during breaks without permission will be confiscated and given to the Headmaster’s P.A. Ms Bonass.
