We are a uniformed school and take care to see that high standards are maintained. To maintain these high standards of school uniform we need the support of our parents. We feel that uniform gives a sense of identity, pride and belonging. It is also efficient workwear for the school day.

  • Tartan Skirt* or dark grey trousers (relaxed fit only)
  • House tie*

Kingdown School Uniform – Frequently Asked Questions

  • Are blazers compulsory?

Yes, blazers must be worn to school every day. During spells of warm weather a decision will be made by the Headteacher if this requirement is to be relaxed. Parents will be advised via a school message if there are long term adjustments to uniform because of the weather (eg hot weather, or snow and ice).

  • Are gel/acrylic/wraps/stick on false nails allowed to be worn?

No – nails should be short and nude/clear in colour. No false or long pointy nails are allowed – they can be a safety hazard.

  • Are any facial piercings allowed?

One pair of stud earrings in the standard lower lobe position is permitted. No other facial/ear/mouth piercings are permitted. New piercings that cannot be removed for a period of time should not be done in term time.

  • Wearing makeup to school?

Students who want to wear makeup should save it for when they’re at home. We would prefer students to be fresh faced and the focus of school to be education. KS4 and above are permitted to wear natural, understated makeup. Dramatic, and heavier, makeup, along with false lashes etc. are more appropriate for out of school hours.

  • Haircuts and hair length.

Extreme haircuts, including wedges, undercuts, shaved head, patterns or lines shaved in or dyed hair (including wash in wash out colours) are not part of school uniform. Long hair should be tied back for safety reasons.

  • What should I do if there is a problem with my child’s uniform?

Students can be issued with a ‘green card’ for temporary exemption. These can be obtained from the Pastoral Office on a daily basis. A note in your child’s organiser to explain the problem and when it will be resolved is always helpful and can help avoid awkward conversations in the office.   Long term issues (other than medical) will need to be discussed with Mr Dudley, Deputy Headteacher.
