At The Regis School students are expected to wear the school uniform outlined below.
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 some circumstances a student may be sent home to change or may be expected to complete their learning in the isolation room.

*Students are expected to wear plain black leather or polishable school shoes. Students are not permitted to wear footwear such as trainers of any colour (including plain black); plimsolls or canvas shoes; shoes with high heels (greater than 1 inch); platforms; flip flops or 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 ankle socks. These must be plain black, with no colour or pattern permitted. Students may opt to wear black, opaque tights.
If you are unclear of which footwear is suitable, please contact us at the school to avoid unnecessary expenditure.
Students are only permitted to wear one plain stud earring in each ear and a watch. No other jewellery is permissible, including bracelets, necklaces, rings, facial piercings (including nose rings or studs, tongue piercings) multiple piercings or ear stretchers/bars. This upholds health and safety requirements in practical lessons and reduces the risk of precious and sentimental items becoming lost or damaged at school. Clear retainers are not acceptable, and families are asked to consider timing any piercings to take account of this, as students will be asked to remove any jewellery item that is not in line with policy and will be given an automatic sanction.
Hairstyles should be smart and in keeping with a formal learning environment. Unacceptable styles include skinhead or punk styles, and whole or partial colouring of an unnatural shade, e.g. blue, bright red and bleached hair. Razor cuts or shaved heads forming patterns to the scalp also come into this category.
Make-up and Nails
A light, natural looking make up is permitted. Excessive make up is not permissible, including heavy black eye make-up, false lashes, or eyebrow make-up. All make up must be subtle. False nails or gel nails are not permitted. Nail varnish if worn, must be clear. No tattoos, including temporary tattoos are permitted.
Students who do not follow the guidelines, will be asked to remove non regulation items and if necessary, will be able to borrow the appropriate item from our uniform store. If the student has an item that cannot be easily removed, such as gel nails, they will be asked to work in our study room, until the uniform issue is resolved. If you have any questions about uniform, please contact your child’s tutor or their Head of Year in the first instance.

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.
The school also runs a termly 'pre-loved' uniform shop at least once a term. We welcome donations at any time via Reception or Head of Year, and the dates of opening are publicised on our website and in our newsletter.
ALL CLOTHING AND EQUIPMENT SHOULD BE MARKED CLEARLY WITH THE STUDENT’S NAME
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.
