Uniform Requirements

Uniform Requirements

School uniform for Years 7-11 is compulsory, and we ask for the full co-operation of every parent in the maintenance of high standards in dress and appearance. The key words are smartness and general appropriateness; extremes should be avoided. The list below is quite detailed particularly with regard to shirts, skirts and trousers. Since uniforms are expensive it is essential that all items of clothing are clearly marked with the owner’s name, so that they can be returned quickly when mislaid. Iron-on labels are not sufficiently secure. School uniform must be worn from home to school and to home in the evening.

No jewellery may be worn except for medical bracelets, watches and matching plain gold or silver stud earrings – no more than one per ear. In line with Surrey County Council guidelines no jewellery at all may be worn during PE lessons even if it is taped up. Please ensure piercings are only done at the start of the summer holidays. Make-up and nail varnish may not be worn.

Extremes of fashion in clothing, footwear and hairstyle are not permitted. A haircut of Grade 2 and under is not acceptable. Unnatural hair colours are not permitted. If a member of SLT judges that your child’s appearance or clothes are unsuitable you will be contacted and he/she will be sent home.

Boys

A tailored suit with a collared shirt, tie and smart leather shoes. A smart jumper may be worn underneath (but not instead of) a suit jacket.

Girls

A tailored skirt suit (knee length) or trouser suit (full length), or a tailored dress (knee length) with tailored jacket, with a smart blouse or top and smart leather shoes.

General

  • Hair should be a natural colour
  • No chunky/fluffy knitwear or fluffy coats
  • No biker / DM boots / DM shoes or similar
  • No strappy / low cut tops
  • No leggings or tight fitting trousers or dresses
  • No nose rings or multiple piercings
