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

Tattoos It is illegal for children under 18 years to have a tattoo and so these will not be accepted at Penrice Academy under any circumstances.

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, and hair should be cut no shorter than a Grade 2. Hair accessories should be functional and discreet. If you are in doubt, please consult your child’s Tutor or Head of Year before your child’s hairstyle is changed.
