College Uniform

Students and parents are responsible for making sure that they know the required standards for uniform and that these standards are met not only in College, but anytime it is worn, particularly to and from College.

Items not permitted within the uniform will be temporarily confiscated; they will be returned once parental confirmation of ownership is obtained and at a time that remains at the discretion of the college.

The uniform is consistent with the ethos of the college and the college states clearly what it considers appropriate dress and presentation. If the college considers an aspect of a student's dress or appearance to be inappropriate, it reserves the right to require correction of this by student and parent/carer. The decision of the Headteacher on any uniform matter is final.

We have recently changed over to a new uniform supplier. Following consultation with students and parents, we have also taken the opportunity of updating certain items, in particular our PE kit. Please be assured that all ‘official’ uniform is acceptable for all students to wear until such times that you are ready to replace it.

All items are now available from:

NK Sports / NK Uniform
Unit 7 Station Road,
Worle, Weston-super-Mare
BS22 6AU
Tel: 01934 511005

P.E. KIT REQUIREMENTS

  • The official purple sports polo shirt
  • Black shorts
  • The official purple/black football/hockey socks (outdoor)
  • White sports socks (indoors)
  • Trainers
  • Football boots
  • Shin pads
  • A towel

Optional for games use only:

  • Black sports sweatshirt
  • Tracksuit bottoms (black)
  • The official purple/black rugby and hockey jersey - (for winter/cold weather)

P.E. kit is essential for every lesson. If a pupil is unable to take part in the lesson because of a medical reason, they still need to bring in their P.E. kit and change. They can then help their teacher to coach, referee or umpire. They may be outside in wet conditions. They will then be able to change out of a wet P.E. kit into a dry uniform for the rest of the day's lessons. No jewellery.

Please note:

1. All items of clothing/equipment must be clearly marked with the student's name.

2. No excesses of fashion are permitted.

3. Garments / items not listed above will be confiscated.

4. Students not adhering to the uniform rules may be withdrawn from mainstream lessons until they do.

Students should take a pride in their standard of uniform and in their college. They represent the college through their appearance at all times both on the premises and on the journey between home and college.

If students are having piercings done during a holiday period, they should leave enough time to be able to remove them on their return to school – the same applies to any hairstyles that do not comply with the above code.

The college is often complimented on the smart appearance of our students and I appreciate the support I get from parents on this matter.  Parents / carers should contact the college if they are having difficulties with any of these rules.

The Headteacher's decision on all matters of uniform is final.

All items should be marked with the child's name.
