The dress code and list of school uniform 

Dress Code

Make-up and nail varnish should not be worn in school. 

Extraordinary hair styles and colouring are not allowed, for example unnatural colours, shaved sides and tramlines or similar.

Please be aware that some shops sell items of clothing classed as “school uniform” which are fashion items and not appropriate for school wear.  If you are unsure about the acceptability of any item of clothing, please contact your child’s Pastoral Manager at the school before purchase.

  • Gum shields:  We highly advise that gum shields should be worn for activities such as hockey and rugby – our supplier can be contacted directly at where prices are very reasonable. 

Outdoor Clothing

Students can wear hats to school in the winter months, but cannot wear them in the school buildings.

We recommend a sensible plain, neutral coloured outdoor coat to be worn over the school uniform. 

Denim jackets, hoodies, sweatshirts or sports tops etc. are discouraged and students will not be allowed to wear these around the school.

Please clearly mark all items of clothing and personal kit with the student’s name.  This will help greatly in recovering lost property. 

Uniform items are available from Rumours of Scarborough. 

Rumours is based at 17 Victoria Road, Scarborough, YO11 1SB.  Tel: 01723 501989. 

We do keep a small number of ties for sale at Reception for emergencies.

Provision of Second-Hand Uniforms

We do stock a number of pre-loved items of uniform.  If you would like further information, please contact a member of the Pastoral Team or Reception on Tel: 01751 47286 or Email:
