Earrings – one pair of plain studs, sleepers or small plain earrings is allowed in the ear lobe. One earring per ear.

Tattoos – it is illegal for children under 18 years to have a tattoo and so these will not be accepted at Penrice

piercings that are not in the ear lobe. Students will not be allowed in school if they refuse to remove them.
A plaster covering the piercing is not acceptable.

Make-up – discreet make-up is permitted in the Academy and discretion is left with the Tutor, Head of Year and
Leadership Team. No coloured nail varnish allowed.

Hairstyles should be neat, tidy and of an acceptable natural colour. Patterned, shaved or multi-coloured highlighted
hair is not permitted in the Academy. If hair colour is used it should be of natural appearance and of one colour only.
Tramlines, shaved hairstyles or extreme hairstyles of any kind are not acceptable.

Non-uniform Day – when these take place students must wear clothing appropriate to the day. Non-uniform does not include fancy dress.
