Boys’ shoes must be black, plain well supported and low heeled.  All stitching and laces must be black and laces tied at all times.  Boots and trainer style shoes (even if they are black) are unacceptable, as are canvas gym pump style shoes and “show off” designer labels.

Sanctions

We understand that on occasion it may be necessary for a pupil to come to school in something other than their ordinary school shoes, for example if their shoes have broken. Unless there is a medical reason, pupils will be given a pair of shoes to wear for the day or until they have their own school shoes.These shoes are supplied by the school and are completely sanitised. Refusal to wear school shoes will result in the pupil being placed in the R&R until the issue is resolved.
