Dress Code

A high standard of personal appearance is expected of all students and staff. We expect students to wear the correct College uniform at all times and all staff will monitor uniform throughout the day. 

Please note that it is not a requirement or expectation that pupils will have a smartphone, or indeed any phone, at IVC. Students will be issued with a 1:1 device in year 7 which will provide them with access to any required apps or learning materials; for more information click here

Uniform items are available via Orchard Clothing.
