Jewellery and make-up

Jewellery should be discreet and appropriate for school – one set of plain studs or small sleepers in pierced ears are allowed (this relates to boys and girls), one necklace, bracelet or ring can also be worn. The academy cannot be responsible for any injury caused by wearing jewellery or for jewellery going missing. We reserve the right to confiscate unsuitable jewellery. Jewellery, which the students are asked to remove, will be held in safe keeping until it is collected by parents/carers.

Students who are incorrectly dressed or who refuse to remove additional/unsuitable jewellery may be taught apart from their peers or sent home.

Facial and body piercings and extremes of hairstyles including cut and colour are not permitted in the academy.

Make-up should be discreet and in keeping with a student’s appearance. Extreme or excessive make-up is not permitted and any student deemed to be wearing too much make-up will be asked to remove it. Students are not permitted to wear nail varnish or nail extensions.

Please note: Ormiston Denes Academy makes the final decision as to what is or is not acceptable in all aspects of a student’s appearance. We are happy to provide guidance where necessary, prior to purchase, should you be unsure.
