October Message to Parents
We are proud of our students and want them to take a pride in being a member of The Hollins. This is one of the reasons that we insist on high standards of personal presentation.
With this in mind, please can you ensure during the half term holidays that your child has the correct uniform for school.
*NO trainers. This includes shoes which may have been sold as “school shoes”, but which have a trainer sole. If in doubt, please ask school before purchasing shoes.
*Trousers must be tailored and not chinos, or tight-fitting, stretch trousers, and certainly NOT denim.
*Hoodies/tracksuit tops; these are not allowed in school. A proper coat should be worn.
*Piercings; No piercings at all are permitted on students in school.
*Haircuts should be appropriate for school, and no shaved lines or patterns are permitted in either hair or eyebrows.
We do put sanctions in place for students who fail to follow these clear rules, but hope that the half term holidays will give adequate time to ensure your child is dressed correctly.
We thank you for helping us to maintain the high standards
which support all students in school
If you are ever near the school at the end of the school day, you will notice that the area nearby becomes very congested.
We would urge all parents to consider arranging a meeting place further away from school to reduce the traffic problems.
Please can we also ask all parents to consider our neighbours, and never to park in such a way that it blocks other people’s driveways, even if you remain in your vehicle. This is one of the major complaints of our neighbours and must be very frustrating. We do our best to maintain good relationships with the local community, so please help us to do so by being as considerate as possible in the area around the school.
We also request that parents do not drive onto the school grounds in the mornings after 8.30 and in the afternoon from 3.00 onwards, in an attempt to keep the school grounds as free from traffic as possible so we can ensure the safety of all students.
Thank you for your support, and as ever, if you feel the need to contact the school with regard to either of these issues, or anything else you would like to discuss, please get in touch.
