NCS Dress Code

NCS is committed to creating an atmosphere of mutual respect and shared values where effective learning can take place and all students can flourish.  Students must take responsibility for keeping the shared work areas and social spaces clean and tidy, leaving all teaching and communal areas as they would wish to find them. This includes the obvious rules of no food or drink in Private Study and no mobile telephones outside of the social space. Students are allowed to listen to music in private study as long as it cannot be heard by anyone else.
