At The Regis School students are expected to wear the school uniform outlined below.
We believe that this creates a sense of identity and belonging and helps to remove the pressure and expense from parents/carers of passing teenage fashions. It also supports the notion that a uniform or dress code is representative of high expectations and standards, a professional environment, thus helping to create an effective learning environment. If a student fails to attend in full school uniform, contact will be made with home in order that the situation can be rectified. In most circumstances students will be sent home to change or will be expected to complete their learning in the Study Room or Internal Exclusion.
The Regis School Uniform
- Years 7-9 White shirt (long or short sleeve)

A coat is advised for wet / colder weather. Sweatshirts, hoodies and alike are not deemed to be coats and therefore are not permitted.
Other uniform expectations:
Students are expected to wear plain black leather or similar school shoes. We are aware that some shoe retailers such as Clarks have brought out footwear which looks similar to a trainer. This type of footwear is permitted as long as it is totally plain black (excluding any type of coloured logo). Students are not permitted to wear footwear such as, trainers of any colour (including black); plimsolls/canvas shoes; shoes with high heels; platforms; flip flops/sandals; boots of any kind; and any footwear that offers no protection from a health and safety point of view. Students are expected to wear plain black or plain white socks, students are not permitted to wear patterned or coloured socks.
If you are unclear of which footwear is suitable please contact us at the school in order to avoid unnecessary expenditure.
Students arriving in non-uniform will be required to wear uniform provided by the school each day until replacement unfiorm has been purchased.
The school follows DfE guidance with regards to jewellery on the grounds of health and safety. Consequently students are only permitted to wear one pair of earrings, one watch and one ring. Students are not permitted to wear multiple piercings or ear stretchers/bars. It is preferable that no facial piercings be worn but a single clear nose stud or clear retainer may be worn. No other piercings are acceptable.
A wide variety of hairstyles are permissible, but those which border upon (or cross) the bizarre are not, on the grounds that they represent an unacceptable image of the school. Unacceptable styles include skinhead, punk, mohican and whole or partial colouring of an unnatural shade, eg: blue and bleached hair. Razor cuts or shaved heads forming patterns to the scalp also come into this category.
Make-up and Nails
A light, non offensive make up is permitted. Excessive make up is not permissible, including heavy black eye make-up.
False nails of any description are not permitted.
Chewing gum is not permitted at any time on the school site. Students found chewing will be disciplined under the school behaviour policy which may include a formal detention.

A thick polythene bag is useful for wet or muddy kit. A sports bag, shoulder bag or large drawstring bag to contain PE kit is essential.
ALL CLOTHING AND EQUIPMENT SHOULD BE MARKED CLEARLY WITH THE STUDENT’S NAME
We accept that mobile phones and ipods etc are an everyday part of students’ lives and as such allow students to bring such items to school. This is on the strict understanding that these devices are only used at break and lunch times outside the building, unless under the direct permission and supervision of a member of staff. Please ensure your child is fully aware of these expectations and that their phones will be confiscated if they are seen out during the school day in the building and result in a 'green slip' detention. Confiscated phones will be given back at the end of the day but persistent breaches of the rules will result in the student not being able to bring their phone to school at all.
If headphones are worn, they must be returned to bags or pockets and not be ‘on show’ at any time inside the building. If seen, they will confiscated and a 'green slip' detention given.

Whilst the above guidance on school uniform and our expectations is not an exhaustive list, it is intended to give sufficient guidance to ensure our students are dressed appropriately for school and we thank our parents/carers for supporting us in this. Should you require any further guidance regarding the school uniform and our expectations please do not hesitate to contact us at the school.
If a student arrives without correct uniform or incorrect appearance and refuses to wear school provided uniform or remove make-up / false nails for example, they are likely to either be sent home (under DFE guidance) or learn for the day away from other students.
We ask that parents check that their children meet our reasonable expectations on a daily basis.
