Students in year 11 have the privilege of wearing a plain black business suit and year 11 tie.  The tie can be purchased through Wise Pay.

Students choosing to wear skirts must ensure they are of an appropriate length for a business environment.

The school will have final say in relation to the suitability of uniform items.
