SCHOOL UNIFORM

School Uniform

Appearance

Students are expected to come to school looking neat and tidy in correct uniform.  We request the co-operation of parents in ensuring that their sons/daughters keep strictly within the prescribed limits. Should any student need, as a temporary measure, to wear garments to school which do not conform to the uniform requirements or colours, an explanatory letter should be sent to his/her Head of Year.

Hair styles:  Length and colour should not be extreme. (A minimum required length is Grade No. 2 )  If long hair is worn it needs to be tied back for Physical Education and practical subjects. This is an essential safety precaution. 

  • JEWELLERY MUST BE KEPT TO A MINIMUM OF ONE PAIR OF STUD EARRINGS
  • NO OTHER JEWELLERY MAY BE WORN
  • MAKE-UP SHOULD BE KEPT TO A MINIMUM AND NOT OBVIOUS
  • ONLY CLEAR NAIL VARNISH IS ALLOWED

Apart from watches, no other jewellery is permitted. Students wearing additional jewellery will have it confiscated and this will have to be collected by parents. It is, of course, sensible to leave jewellery at home, in the interest of its safety. Hence the school accepts no responsibility whatsoever for items lost or damaged.

Uniform Donations: St Mary’s Charity Shop
We work closely with St Mary’s charity shop on Dovehouse parade to recycle used uniform, minimising environmental waste whilst providing an affordable option to families. Used uniform can be dropped into Langley's School reception or directly donated to the shop. Uniform will be available to purchase from St Mary's from the end of July.
