Our uniform is very important to us and has been designed in consultation with the students and parents/carers. No variations from the uniform are permitted.
White Claydon High School polo shirt with logo
Polo shirts without the logo are not acceptable and coloured and/or long-sleeved tops may not be worn underneath.
Skirts should be knee length and made of non-clingy fabric in a tailored design; not jersey or a ‘bandage’/‘body-con’ style.
Trousers should be tailored with waistband, pockets and not tight around the ankles. Jeans/denim fabric, leggings, three-quarter length and “skinny” style or tight fitting trousers are not allowed.
Shorts should be tailored; not sports, beach or combat style.
Parents/carers are advised to buy black skirts, trousers and shorts from Coes or PMG and should be advised that high street providers’ ranges may not be acceptable under our policy.
Claydon High School black jumper with logo
A school jumper must be worn around school and may be removed in lessons
Coats should be warm, practical and preferably water/showerproof.
Jumpers, cardigans, short fashion jackets and “hoodies” may not be worn as a coat. “Hoodies” are banned items in school and will be confiscated.
Shoes should be plain black all over and be made of leather. Sensible and comfortable designs are required and for health and safety reasons backless shoes, open toes, ‘pumps’ which do not cover much of the foot, high heels, boots and platform shoes are not acceptable.
Trainers, skate shoes, canvas shoes, plimsolls (including all Nike, Adidas, Vans, Converse or similar branded shoes), and any with visible logos or branding are not allowed.
Discreet make-up is allowed but no coloured nail varnish, gel or acrylic nails are allowed. A watch and one discreet stud in each ear is the only permitted jewellery. No other piercings or jewellery is allowed. Hairstyles of an extreme design or colour are not allowed.
Plain black polo shirt or white polo shirt with logo
No other shirts are acceptable
Plain black v-neck long-sleeved jumper, or school jumper with logo
No other jumpers, cardigans, fashion jackets or tops are acceptable. The black polo skirts and jumpers do not have a logo so students can continue to wear them after Year 11.
