UNIFORM EXPECTATIONS and GUIDANCE

The College uniform is a comfortable, practical and easy care alternative to more formal uniform worn in many colleges.

It is worn by all students in Years 7 to 11 when representing the College on their way to and from College and throughout the College day.

We expect all College students to take pride in their appearance and to remember that they are ambassadors for their College.  First impressions count so make sure your uniform is always correct, clean, tidy and worn with pride.

The College uniform is:

Boys

  • WHITE POLO SHIRT WITH COLLAR. Any garment worn under the polo shirt must not be visible. Shirts must at least be long enough to meet the top of the trousers.
  • PLAIN BLACK TAILORED TROUSERSno checks, pinstripes, buckles, extra zips, denim, leg pockets. Trousers should be full length, no wider than the length of the shoe and must not be skinny fit.
  • COLLEGE NAVY BLUE ROUNDNECKED SWEATSHIRT with College logo.
  • PLAIN NEUTRAL, BLACK OR WHITE SOCKS
  • BLACK SHOES OR PLAIN ALL BLACK TRAINERS that are polishable or wipeable and should be all black are part of the College uniform and must be worn at all times in College. No canvas or suede. Laces should be black. Sandals or beach shoes should not be worn. Trainers can be worn to play games in at breaktimes, but students must change their footwear on entering the College buildings. 

Girls

  • WHITE POLO SHIRT OR BLOUSE WITH COLLAR. Blouses must be ‘V’ necked and have short or long sleeves.  Any garment worn under the polo shirt must not be visible. Shirts or blouses must at least be long enough to meet the top of the trousers or skirt.

If the style of skirt includes a split for ease of movement it should not be above mid-thigh length. When buying a skirt it would be advisable to buy a size that allows for growth so that the skirt is never above mid-thigh.

All students

  • OUTDOOR WEAROutdoor wear such as coats, gloves and scarves may only be worn outside College buildings. Coats should be practical in design – warm and weather proof.  Casual jackets, fashion jackets such as denim, sports tops and “Hoodies” are not permitted in College.  Leather and other expensive materials should not be worn.  Warm woollen or fleece hats may be worn outside.
  • JEWELLERYExcessive jewellery must not be worn but some jewellery is allowed and students may wear – no more than a single stud earring in each ear, a fine necklace worn underneath the polo shirt and a wristwatch. No finger rings, face piercing or other jewellery is allowed.  Belts should fit in belt loops and be black.

Please make sure that every item of clothing is clearly marked with your name.

Where students are entitled to wear additional uniform items such as Sports Leaders or Ten Tors students, the uniform must be that supplied and worn only by those students entitled to wear it.

Other advice:

  • HAIR must be a natural colour and worn in a style that does not compromise health or safety. Extreme styles and hair ornaments are not appropriate for College. (If any question over the nature of extreme the Principal will decide).
  • MAKE UP should be discreet; if it is noticeable it is not discreet!
  • COLLEGE BAGS should be practical, large enough to carry the necessary books, equipment and easy to carry. A rucksack style is ideal.
  • CHEWING GUM is not allowed.
  • DRINKING WATER is allowed in lessons in clear plastic bottles but is not allowed in science laboratories or areas where IT equipment is in use. Students are responsible for topping up drinking bottles at break and lunchtime and not during lesson times.  No other drinks are allowed in class.
