Uniform Guide

We thank parents for supporting their child in adhering to the school uniform regulations that also works to meet the religious ethos of the school under the auspices of the United Synagogue.  Students are ambassadors of our school and dress and behave in a way that reflects our high standards.  We work very hard to make sure everyone is fully aware of our uniform rules and if we ever change any detail of our uniform, we will let you know by means of an email or letter, but not through your child.  All students in Years 7-11 inclusive must wear the school uniform stated and items that do not meet the expectation will be confiscated.  Please contact your child’s Head of Year if you have any queries about what is not permitted.  From September 2021, we will only have one uniform, not two.  In the summer months, when it very hot, we will consider a relaxation of these rules.

The table below shows the list of items that are required during Years 7 to 11.  Please take note of which items are prohibited in our uniform policy. All items are available from the school uniform shop unless stated.
