ALL BOYS ARE EXPECTED TO WEAR SCHOOL UNIFORM

Rationale & Sanctions

Parents are advised that they agree to their children wearing the school’s uniform when they accept a place at NTC.  Support for this policy has been overwhelming in feedback from parents.  Our rules are guided by a desire to ensure smartness but also that boys are properly protected from the elements.  Consequently, we will apply a range of sanctions as outlined in the School’s Behaviour Policy (Available on the School website) in order to ensure consistency in this matter.

Punishments can range from Order Marks to Working in Isolation in school.

We have purchased a stock of shoes which boys will be required to wear if they arrive in trainers.  These will always be sanitised before another boys is asked to wear them.

Uniform

Black Blazer with school badge, black or dark grey trousers, white shirt, black fine knit ‘V’ neck pullover with no logo not sweatshirts, (hooded or otherwise), school tie, plain sensible black footwear with black soles & laces.

Coats should be sensible waterproof coats.  Trainers are only to be worn when playing games and certainly not whilst journeying to or from school except on those rare occasions when a boy has brought a note because of a genuine problem with his shoes new shoes will be provided on arrival.  Baseball caps and ‘hoodies’ are not in keeping with school uniform and should not be brought to school at all.

Jewellery

You are allowed to wear a watch and plain studs may be worn in the ear (two in total).  No facial piercings or other jewellery is to be worn.

Hair

Haircuts should be neat & tidy and conform to a simple style in keeping with the principle of school uniform.  Hair longer than a shirt collar is to be tied up at all times, unnatural hair colours are not allowed, no elements of shaved hair allowed (i.e. no less than No 2 clippers), emblems or patterns are not allowed to be cut into the hair.  Sixth Form hairstyles are to be sensible and looked at on an individual basis.  In the interests of safety, you are not allowed to wear excessive amounts of gel, mousse or any similar substance are not allowed.

Uniform & Equipment

In order to make the most of your Secondary education, you need to be organised and to have the correct equipment for the right lessons.

You should have a school bag in which exercise books, text books and other basic school equipment and resources can be carried without becoming damaged or dirty.  Wet and muddy games kit, if carried in the same bag, will soon ruin books unless put in a separate compartment or container (e.g. a carrier bag); better still, PE kit should be transported in a separate bag.
