Uniform

We believe that wearing uniform helps to create a sense of identity, pride and community in school. Our uniform is smart, practical and comfortable. We rely on parents to ensure that pupils arrive in school in correct uniform and may implement sanctions if a pupil does not comply. 

All items can be purchased from our suppliers: SWI Schoolwear and Essential Schoolwear

To purchase GCSE Drama and/or GCSE Dance uniform please visit Total Clothing.

Please note that skirts and trousers, if purchased elsewhere, should resemble those sold by our suppliers.

Shirts

Blue College polo shirt (Grey for Prefects). Any garment worn under the polo shirt must not be visible whether the shirt is worn buttoned or unbuttoned.

Sweatshirts

Grey College sweatshirt (Black for Year 11). The College sweatshirt must always be worn as the next layer over the polo shirt, when one is required.

Trousers

These should be plain black, full length and of a traditional school uniform style. They should have no logo, patch pockets, studs, decoration or distinctive belt. Jeans or jean-style trousers are not acceptable. Tight-fitting, stretch, skinny-style or excessively wide trousers are not acceptable.

Two styles of skirt are permitted, of the same design and fabric as that available from our on-line supplier.

1. Cambourne Salisbury straight skirt

2. Cambourne pleated skirt

Shoes

These should be flat and all black with no contrasting logos or symbols. They should be of a traditional style and suitable for movement around a large, busy school. They must be able to be securely fastened, and worn accordingly. Boots, open sandals and high heels are not acceptable.

Hair

Extreme haircuts as judged by the College are not acceptable. Shaven heads or any haircut which involves the shaving of lines or symbols, extreme coloration or particularly noticeable variations in colour or length will almost certainly be judged as extreme.

Identity Badges

Name badges are issued to all students upon entry to the school and are worn on the front of the jumper, opposite to, and level with the school badge. This is a compulsory part of the uniform.

Outside wear
