The aim of our uniform policy is to enable all our students to be comfortable and smartly dressed in a uniform that is affordable.  Our official supplier for new uniform is Game, Set and Match (www.gsam.co.uk) and our Parents and Friends Association run a second-hand uniform shop in school (www.bishopluffa.org.uk/parents-and-carers/pfa-uniform-shop).

The School cannot be held responsible for property lost by students. We shall do our best to find the missing items and it is a great help if all clothing and property is clearly marked with the owner’s name.

No jewellery, (including rings and bracelets of any kind) except one plain stud in each ear. No other piercings are allowed on health and safety grounds. Please do not have, for example, a nose, eyebrow or bellybutton piercing as you cannot wear a nose, eyebrow and bellybutton stud to school on health and safety grounds.  In addition, you may not be able to take part in PE or Games activities. You will not be allowed to cover a piercing either, whilst it heals. Students are allowed to wear a small cross on a necklace provided it is not visible.

Non-uniform jumpers, sweatshirts or jackets may not be worn or brought to school. Ties must be worn with at least six gold stripes showing. Outdoor coats, anoraks, etc. should not be worn inside the school building. The wearing of make-up, nail polish, false eyelashes or false nails is not permitted, the only exception is that students may choose to wear light foundation. Hair should not be dyed bright or unnatural colours. If you are unsure check with your Head of House before you have it done.

Full uniform must be worn to and from the school.

New School SkirtFollowing feedback from parents and the school council, we decided to change the school skirt. This was due to problems with the fit and cost of the item. In consultation with students we decided on a 'Davenport’ style skirt with a knife pleat in grey, with the expectation that the band would be showing and the skirt would reach the student’s knee.


Students need not wear blazers or jumpers. If wearing a white shirt, ties must, however, be worn. They must be worn correctly and not tucked into the shirt. PE tops may only be worn for PE or Games. Shirts and blouses must be tucked into skirts and trousers. If tights or socks are worn they may be plain grey or black. Toeless shoes or sandals must not be worn.
