School Uniform

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.

For students in Years 7-11 the uniform is as follows:

Further expectations around appearance:

Jewellery:

Jewellery must be limited to a single pair of plain ear studs, one charity band and a watch. No other piercings are allowed.

Hair:

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).

Make-up:

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.

Nails:

No coloured nail varnish allowed. Acrylic/gel nails are also not suitable for school and should therefore not be worn.

 Footwear

We only allow plain black (leather look) 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 2021. Whether branded or not, this footwear must be completely black, leather look and have no colour or embellishments. Trainers, canvas pumps (Vans for example) or similar are not allowed (even if they are all black).

Please open the document below which illustrates exactly the types of footwear we do and do not allow.
