Uniform sets a high standard of appearance. The wearing of appropriate dress for Physical Education and Games and for the practical subjects is clearly advantageous for student safety. Uniform can be purchased online, via the school website, Parent Zone – uniform.
House badge - this can be purchased from the school. House colours: Bostock Red, Ravenscroft Green, Kinderton Blue, Newton Yellow, Stanthorne Orange.
Black trousers – tailored in style and not jeans or skinny fit. Leggings are not allowed.
Black tights or black/white socks.
Black shoes – Black sensible shoes (not boots, trainers, canvas or Converse shoes). No dangerous high heels or canvas footwear will be allowed. It should be noted that reasonably-robust school shoes are desirable for safety reasons. A booklet showing acceptable styles is available from the student services office.
School jumper - this does not replace the blazer but can be worn underneath it. No other jumpers or sweatshirts are permitted.
- It is not appropriate to wear make-up or nail varnish at school.
- Extremes of hairstyle or hair colour are inappropriate for school and will be deemed unacceptable.
- Jewellery must be kept to the absolute minimum. Only a signet or other plain ring is permitted. Students may wear one simple stud earring in the lobe of each ear and one simple bracelet only. One charity bracelet may also be worn.
- Nose studs, ear stretchers/tunnels or other body piercings are not permitted at school. Skin coloured ear tunnel plugs are acceptable for students with existing piercings. (Large holes pose a health and safety risk). No other plugs or tunnels are acceptable in school.
Students must wear a school T-Shirt, school socks and a choice of bottoms from the following range from our supplier:
Shorts, skort, leggings, tracksuit bottoms; any girls representing the school must wear a skort.
Students may wish to purchase the half zip top for cold weather.
Football boots and trainers are required. We recommend they have astro trainers.
Girls in Year 9, 10 and 11 are permitted to wear plain navy sports leggings for PE lessons only; any girls representing the school must wear a skort.
All jewellery must be removed for PE lessons and sporting events.
We use a system involving a series of cards which must be carried by all students at all times. Staff can request the card at any time and will record any uniform or equipment misdemeanour. There are three types of cards:
Green Card - Every student is given a new green card at the beginning of each term they will write their name on the back and the term clearly marked ie. Spring Term 1.
Every time the student is spotted with incorrect uniform, or arrives at a lesson without the correct equipment, the member of staff will sign the card.
There will be one card issued per half term. After three warnings for indiscretions of uniform/ equipment tutors will contact home to offer support.
After four warnings for indiscretions of uniform or equipment a Repair Session (RM) will be issued by the tutor and contact home will be made to offer further support.
Any indiscretion after this will be referred to the relevant Education Support Worker, who will support the tutor and if required contact home to see if their support is required.
The cards are renewed after each half term. Any lost cards will be replaced but a Repair session will be issued. There are no yellow or red cards - our expectation is that students are ready to learn every day. The card system allows recognition of being ready to learn, as blank cards will be recognised through our reward system by receiving ten reward points each half term.
