King James' School

Jewellery, Make-up, Hair & Personal Belongings

  • Jewellery and make-up are discouraged throughout the school.
  • In Years 7 and 8 make-up is not permitted, whilst in Years 9 to 11 if worn it should be discreet.
  • Nail varnish is not permitted.
  • Students who have pierced ears may wear a discreet stud or sleeper in each ear.
  • Nose, tongue studs and other similar forms of facial jewellery are not permitted. Parents should seek advice from school before allowing their children to embark on any form of piercing that is not a traditional ear piercing.
  • A fine necklace chain and one flat ring may be worn, but this must be in keeping with the school uniform.
  • Students should not wear bracelets/wrist chains, except for the anti-bullying band that the school provides and recognised charity bands. These should be removed for practical subjects and no more than two worn at the same time.
  • Extremes in hairstyles are to be avoided. Students should not have hair cut shorter than grade 2 or have patterns shaved in their hair.
  • Hair should not be dyed any non-natural colour, for example orange, purple or blue.
  • Once on school grounds, mobile phones, i-pods and music systems should be turned off and not taken out unless they are being used as part of a lesson or organised activity - this includes before and after school and at lunchtime.
  • If phones or i-pods are seen being used on the school grounds, they will be removed from the student and kept at School Reception until parents come to collect them.
  • No form of aerosol or pressurised canister is allowed on the school site.
  • Chewing gum and fizzy drinks are not allowed in school.
