Uniform

HUNTERHOUSE COLLEGE UNIFORM                                                                                                                                                                  2016 – 2017

 

 

 

  • School uniform is a fundamental aspect of the school identity and presents many advantages for our school community. Uniform requirements are as simple as possible and are intended to reinforce a sense of pride among students in their school both within the school community and when representing the school in the wider community. Uniform also ensures that the school presents a neat business-like appearance at all times and enables students to be appropriately dressed for school activities.

 

  • Apart from a small, plain watch, a Medic-Alert bracelet, one pair of small, plain ear studs (worn one in the lobe of each ear) and one plain band or signet ring, any of which is permitted, jewellery must not be worn with school uniform. For health and safety reasons no other jewellery is permitted – as already stated above this includes jewellery worn in visible or hidden piercings.

 

  • Pupils should not colour or style their hair in an extreme way during term time. Hair colour should be “natural”.

 

 

  • Parents are expected to co-operate fully over these essential aspects of school discipline. Parents and pupils should note that sanctions will be imposed as a result of breach of the regulations and that non-uniform items may be confiscated.

 

  • All clothes and property must be clearly marked with the owner’s name.
