Dress Code

We are always judged by external appearances. Whatever you may think about that, it is reality and, whilst your individuality is respected, you are asked to think about the ‘public perception’ of the school at all times. Try, as far as possible, to ask yourself whether or not you would wear your school clothes in a place of work.

Our aim is that you should always look smart. You are a role model for the younger students and an Ambassador for The Priory School when you visit other establishments.
