St. Joseph's Catholic College


The recent fashion for extremely short ‘back and sides’ haircuts has led to some students failing to comply with the College uniform policy. This states that hair should not be excessively short. The College accepts grade one cuts, but any shorter than this and the haircut will fail to comply with the uniform policy.

The few students who have got their hair cut to a length below grade one have subsequently lost their social times until it has grown back to an acceptable length.  These students have been disappointed with this outcome; however, we are relentless in maintaining the College’s high standards.

Please be mindful of the College’s uniform policy when you take your child to have a haircut and ensure that the hairdresser follows your request.
