Outdoor coats

A waterproof coat may be worn over the blazer to commute to college but must be removed immediately once learners are inside the building.

 

Jewellery and Make-Up

All learners may wear a watch.

Discreet make-up should be worn (no false eyelashes).

The college retains the right to ask learners to remove excessive make-up. Make-up should not be brought into college.

Hair style and length should be suitable for college and such that it does not draw particular attention to the individual. Hair should be of a natural colour.

No bands/bracelets. Charity bands will be permitted at specific times, such as Remembrance Week. This will be indicated on the college website and learners will be informed in assemblies.

PE Kit

The Red and Black Darton PE top is a compulsory item from September 2016.

Any plain back shorts, skorts or track suit bottoms can be worn with this. Tight leggings are not acceptable unless worn for Dance.

Piercings

Learners are only permitted to wear a single set of stud earrings in the lower lobe of the ear.

No other form of facial piercings are allowed.

Non-visible facial piercings (e.g. tongue studs) are also not permitted.

Please do not allow your child to have a new piercing done close to the start of a school term; we will not make allowances for recent piercings.

A clear retaining pipe similar to fishing wire can be used to keep the piercing open, however this must not be visible.

 

Ear phones and Accessories

In accordance with the Mobile  Phone Policy ear phones may be used at social times, but are not part of the school  uniform. Any earphones visible during lessons/on corridors etc may be confiscated and behaviour consequences will apply.
