School uniform is worn by all pupils in the Junior School and for the first five years of Senior School. Please refer to the uniform regulations below for requirements. All clothing must be clearly marked with the owner’s name on a permanent name label. All other equipment must be clearly marked too. All items of school uniform are available from Monkhouse in Cheadle Hulme. In addition to purchasing items of uniform new, parents from the PTA also provide an excellent service through the Sustainable Uniform Store throughout the school year.
Correct uniform (only available from Monkhouse) must be worn. Hair should be tied back using plain navy, black or white scrunchies/ribbons/bobbles. Jewellery is not permitted, except for small, plain stud earrings; these need to be removed or covered for PE. Please specify at Monkhouse that you require Junior School uniform.
Girls from the Third Form (Year 7) to the Upper Fifth (Year 11) wear the school jacket and standard school skirt or trousers. The length of the skirt should be no longer than mid-calf and no shorter than just above the knee. Shoes must be plain navy or black, should be low-heeled and suitable for indoor wear. Navy blue or black tights, or navy blue or white socks of knee or ankle length, must be worn.
Coats should be plain black or navy. PE fleeces or WGS crested sweatshirts may be worn to and from school but other ‘hoodies’ are not acceptable. There is a regulation school scarf – no other scarf is allowed. No jewellery other than watches, school badges, and simple stud earrings, (one per ear lobe, not nose or any other type of studs) are allowed, although a small religious pendant may be worn under the school blouse (girls will be required to remove these for games lessons). Nail varnish and make-up are not appropriate for school and should not be worn. Hairstyles must be consistent with school uniform; extreme styles or colours are not allowed. Hair bands, if worn, should be plain black, navy or white.
Muslim pupils from the Third Form upwards may choose to wear a plain navy headscarf, embroidered with the School crest, also available only from Monkhouse, Cheadle Hulme.
Pupils in the Sixth Form wear their own clothes for school. These should be of an appropriate style for school, with no extreme fashion items, including jewellery, make-up and hair colour. For formal school occasions such as Founders’ Day, the Sixth Form are expected to wear smart ‘interview-style’ clothes.
