Sutton High first UK School to adopt the Halo Code

11 January 2021

In December 2020 we became the first UK school to adopt the Halo Code, changing our uniform policy in a bid to support the movement to end hair discrimination across schools and workplaces.

We were lucky enough to host The Halo Collective who came in to launch the initiative for girls from Year 6 to Sixth Form, teaching them about the history of black hair and the significance of this movement in celebrating and acknowledging cultural diversity.

Watch this short video for a round-up of the day.

The launch was covered by the ITV News at 6 and an article was featured in the Times, an exciting and monumentous day at Sutton High for all involved! You can read the article from the Times here.
