Uniform

Our school uniform is changing.  From September 2010 the new Year 7 and Year 10 (current Year 9) will be expected to wear the new school uniform, details of which are given below.

The new uniform can be purchased from Identity Ltd., who can be contacted on (01229) 823584.

For next year’s Years 8, 9 and 11 there is the option of either wearing our existing uniform or of wearing the new one.  Anyone wishing to purchase the ‘old’ uniform can do so by contacting Coniston Corporate on (015394) 41360.

A copy of both of the school’s uniform list is given below. We ask parents to support us in maintaining high standards of appearance by ensuring that all students in Year 7 - 11 are dressed in the School’s uniform.

As we say in our prospectus, “It is felt that the wearing of items of school uniform helps pupils to take a pride in themselves and in their school, and at the same time, provides an inexpensive and suitable way of dressing for school.”  A Uniform and Appearance Policy will appear on this page shortly.

The new school uniform is as follows (compulsory for Years 7 and 10, optional for Years 8, 9 and 11 in September 2010):

  • A V-necked black sweater incorporating the school crest
  • Black trousers (not denim or cotton) or
  • A knee-length black skirt (not denim or cotton) of an approved style
  • White shirt or blouse (tucked into trousers or skirt) with a tidy collar
  • Vests or other underwear worn under a shirt or blouse should be plain white with no printed patterns or insignia
  • An approved school tie, knotted close to the collar, which must be fastened
  • Plain dark grey, black or navy socks. Plain black tights or black socks may be worn with a skirt
  • Plain, clean, black shoes (not trainers or hybrids), with no sports logos
  • Plain black (non-fashion) belts only are permitted
  • Coats, if worn, must be suitable for the school environment, with no extremes of fashion or large logos or insignia
  • Scarves, hats or gloves, if worn, must be suitable for the school environment, with no extremes of fashion
  • Students are expected to have a school bag large enough to carry the books and equipment necessary for school. Fashion handbags are not suitable.

Students must not wear a scarf, coat, hat or gloves in class, in the dining hall or in assemblies.

Students should not wear jewellery (except for a wrist watch), unless they have permission to do so on religious grounds. Students with ear piercings will be instructed to remove them.

Correct school uniform must be worn when travelling to and from school.

Hair must be tidy and of a natural shade; no extremes of fashion. Long hair must be tied back when instructed to do so for safety reasons.
