School Ties 2021-2022

As of September we begin moving towards a different stripe on the school tie for each individual year group. Our new Year 7 will need a red stripe, Year 8 and Year 9 will remain in the current tie, Year 10 (who would have been required to purchase a new Key Stage 4 tie) will need a purple stripe and Year 11 will continue with their blue stripe. For current students in the school, the only change is for current Year 9 (as they move into Year 10) who will need a new purple stripe tie going forward.

Students will keep with their year group colour throughout their time at CCHS.
Should any parents have difficulty purchasing a new tie for their child moving into Year 10, please email the school.

NB. From the start of the new academic year - September 2021

Year 8 - CCHS tie - Original Plain (no stripe)

Year 9 - CCHS tie - Original Plain (no stripe)

Expectations around adornments are:

  • Facial piercings - are not allowed. Students who come to school with a facial piercing will be expected to take it out and a refusal to do so could mean they are removed from lessons until they have done so.
    ose studs may be replaced with a clear-plastic stud which can be worn only for the 6-week healing period, after which they are to be completely removed when in school.
  • Jewellery – earrings are limited to one pair of studs; no hoops are allowed.
    Necklaces can be worn, but must be discreet and not on view.
  • Hair - only natural hair colours; e.g. no blue, pink, red, purple, green and no extreme hairstyles.
    Any student who comes to school with hair deemed unacceptable could be removed from
    lessons until their hair meets our expectations.
  • False eyelashes – these should mirror the typical length of natural eyelashes and be of a natural colour.
  • Fingernails (real/false) – should be of an appropriate length for school so as not to contravene health and safety, and be appropriate and for participation in PE, or technology subjects.
  • Make up – if worn, should be discreet and appropriate for school.
  • Socks – plain black or white socks only and these must be worn below the knee.
  • Outside garments - which are not part of school uniform should not be worn when inside the school building under any circumstance. On entering the school premises at the start of the day and following social times, garments should be removed straight away.

Failure to comply with standards of dress and/or adornments will lead to removal from lessons until standards meet those of the school, and contact home.
