At Queen’s Park High School we expect a high standard of personal appearance from all our students whether this is in school during the day or equally as ambassadors beyond the school gates.
Our school uniform encourages a sense of community, develops a sense of pride and belonging, whilst also preparing our students for life beyond education. We welcome parental support to help maintain our high expectations.
Any student not in full school uniform or whose appearance does not meet our standards, may spend the day with their tutor, be put in internal exclusion or be sent home to change. If there is a genuine emergency then a note should be brought into school for the attention of the tutor. Should you have any questions about our uniform policy, then please do not hesitate to contact us at school and we will be able to add further clarification as necessary.

Further expectations around appearance:
Jewellery is limited to a watch, one stud in each ear and one charity band. No other piercings are allowed.
Hair styles must be appropriate for school and not infringe health and safety. Students should refrain from having extreme hairstyles or brightly coloured hair during school time. Hair should be one natural colour. Hair styles should also not be excessively short or shaven (not less than a number two).
In Years 7-9, make-up should not be worn.
From Year 10 upwards – light, natural looking make-up may be worn – no lipstick, eye-shadow etc. Students will be asked to remove any make-up which is deemed by the school to be excessive or inappropriate.
No coloured nail varnish allowed. Acrylic/gel nails are also not suitable for school and should therefore not be worn.
We only allow plain black shoes. We have taken on board feedback about some hybrid style sports footwear which is simply a branded version of the same shoe style which can be bought in places such as Clarks and we will therefore permit this style from September 2022. Whether branded or not, this footwear must be completely black and have no coloured logos, soles, laces or embellishments. .
