At Hugh Christie, we believe our uniform fosters a sense of belonging, pride and identity. It sets high standards for students and makes an important contribution to a positive and purposeful working environment.
We therefore have a smart school uniform that is compulsory to wear at all times on the journey to and from the school and during the school day. Failure to adhere to the policy is serious and will be disciplined through the school’s behaviour protocols.
The uniform requirement for students is as follows:
Black tailored trousers made from at least 60% polyester or Hugh Christie navy skirt (navy blue of black tights or socks must be worn with the skirt)
Plain pale blue shirt or a pale blue open necked blouse with school logo
Hugh Christie cardigan or jumper – not compulsory; can be worn under but NOT instead of a blazer
Hugh Christie blazer
Completely black leather shoes
Clothing which is not allowed:
Tight or ‘skinny’ trousers
Non Hugh Christie skirts
Boots, trainers, flip flops or full/part canvas shoes
Patterned or fishnet tights, footless tights or stockings
Looped earrings, “bling” earrings with imitation jewels, multiple pairs of earrings
All other jewellery
Make-up (including acrylic nails, nail gels, nail colouring and varnish)
Hoodies, denim jackets, leather jackets or tracksuit tops worn as an outside jacket
Jumpers, jackets, cardigans or fleeces other than those with a logo
Caps or hats
Extreme hairstyles (Mohawks, tramlines, shaved patterns, less than grade two, unnatural hair dye colours)
Long sleeved tops underneath polo shirts, short sleeve shirts or blouses
Please ensure that suitable outdoor coats, gloves and scarves are worn on the journey to and from school. These must be taken off when in lessons. In hot weather, the school will inform students when jackets do not need to be worn.
In the event students do not arrive at school wearing the correct uniform then;
They will be offered alternative washed school clothing and footwear available from ‘the rack’.
Should they refuse to wear these alternatives, parents will be contacted to request the correct uniform is delivered to school.
In the event a student still refuses to wear the correct uniform despite requests from school staff and their parents, it will be deemed as a refusal to carry out a reasonable instruction and they will be sent to Silent Independent Study room for the remainder of the day. This will result in them moving to the first behaviour stage or to the next stage.
Some religions and beliefs require their adherents to conform to a particular dress code. The school will reserve the right to restrict freedoms only in some circumstances, such as to promote cohesion and good order in the school or genuine health and safety or security considerations. This will be done through dialogue with the child and family concerned.
(* Optional Items)
(# No other warm top may be worn)
Participation in Physical Education is an important part of developing a healthy lifestyle for your child. Therefore, we expect that all students will bring the correct kit to the school on days when they have PE lessons.
Students who do not arrive properly equipped for lessons will be expected to borrow kit from the PE department. Students who choose not to bring in kit and refuse to borrow departmental kit will need to engage in a restorative conversation after school.
