Note on uniform

This year we reviewed our arrangements for summer uniform with Heads of Faculty and Heads of Year before Easter. They were unanimous that the move to summer uniform was best made at Whitsun, ie after next half term. This has been the traditional position at Verulam as after this date it is usually significantly warmer and summer has truly arrived.

Therefore, pupils should continue to wear full school uniform until notified otherwise i.e. a long sleeved shirt, tie and blazer.

If we have the odd day of exceptionally hot weather, boys will be told by form tutors they can dispense with blazers for that day. This was the case today.

Should we experience a prolonged period of hot weather before Whitsun, we will review this position.
