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.
The Regis School Uniform
Optional for girls – Bespoke school skirt (available from our supplier) worn at original length (unaltered)
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 ankle socks. These must be plain black or plain grey, 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 in order to avoid unnecessary expenditure.
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. No facial (or other) piercings are allowed (including any form of nose piecing).
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/eyebrow make-up. All make up must be subtle. false nails are not permitted. Nail varnish must be subtle.
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.

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.
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.
