SCHOOL UNIFORM YEARS 7-10 The School Uniform and Dress Code makes an important contribution to creating a positive and purposeful school ethos. We rely upon parents to uphold our tradition of smartness. Students are expected to be neat and well groomed and in a manner consistent with a formal working environment. Hair should be tidy, groomed and of a natural colour, consistent in style with the wearing of a formal uniform (extremes of style are not permitted). Shirts should be tucked in and ties done up to the neck. It is important that uniform colours and styles are exact: a full range of items is stocked by Thomas Moore, Fore Street, Exeter. If purchasing from other sources please ensure that the items match the requirements below. The following details must be observed by pupils: A school blazer and tie should be worn by Years 7 –10. Blazers should be black for boys, navy for girls. Sweaters are optional and if worn should be v-necked, plain knit, and in plain navy, with school crest. They should neither be long nor baggy. Crests can be purchased from the Admin Centre. Blouses and Shirts should be plain white with a shirt collar and appropriate for wearing tucked in and with a tie. Fitted blouses (style ‘Ann’) may be worn but should be tucked in if the length of the blouse is significantly below the skirt waistband. Shoes (not boots) should be leather-type, black and plain. Footwear should be appropriate for school use, and this rules out raised heels and casual shoes (eg trainers, flip-flops etc). Trousers should be tailored (not baggy, flared or bell-bottomed). Trousers for boys should be full- length and dark charcoal grey. Jeans, corduroy or canvas trousers etc, may not be worn. Trousers for girls must be navy and conform with the following styles: Trutex styles: JWT301, JWT431 & JWT441, Banner style: 3822, Wintec: styleSK2225 Skirts should be worn between 2 inches below the knee to knee length, and should be plain navy blue, in the following styles: (No other styles may be worn) Banner style SK185 (stitched down pleats), Wintec style SK109 (knife pleats, elasticised waist).

When worn with a skirt, socks can be either ankle or three quarter length, white or navy. Navy blue or black tights can be worn with skirts. Jewellery/Make-up/Accessories Jewellery is inappropriate for school. A small pair of ear studs or sleepers may be worn (one in each earlobe). Nose studs and other piercings may not be worn. No make-up is permitted and hair accessories must be plain navy or black. Overcoats or jackets should be plain navy or black and free from decoration or logos. These may be worn to travel to school. Overcoats should not be worn during or between lessons. (A blazer and sweater should normally be sufficient.) Recommended for safety: Fluorescent arm-bands. Scarf in school colours or plain navy or black. This may not be worn in school. Summer Uniform - from the beginning of the Summer Term A school tie should be worn with shirts and blouses. Blazers or sweaters need not be worn in the summer. Sandals, suitable for school may be worn (neither open-toed nor flip-flop style). YEARS 11-13 Sixth Form students are very much the leaders in school - they are seen by younger pupils as role models, and are involved in Main School activities and public events. We therefore ask students to dress smartly. Hair should be well groomed and should not be extreme in style. It is important that uniform colours and styles are exact. Thomas Moore and Pinder & Tuckwell, Exeter are major stockists of the Sixth Form uniform. If purchasing from other sources please ensure the items match the requirements below.
