Our College Uniform
Further information can be found within our uniform policy available in ‘policies’ section of the website. Any student wishing to wear a skirt must wear our bespoke tartan royal blue skirt. We have also selected a range of bespoke classic or slim leg fit trousers that match our improved quality blazer. The school trousers will have the ‘S’ for Stoke Damerel embroidered in black just below the waistband or the pocket. The skirt or trousers are compulsory.
Students are to wear:
Shoes – All students must wear plain black flat shoes that have no logos or contrasting coloured decorative elements. They must be water-proof leather-look and polishable and of a style that is not likely to endanger the wearer whilst in College. Boots, open-toed shoes, sling backs, sandals or flip – flops are not permitted. Further guidance on shoes for September 2021 is below.
Socks – Socks are to be plain black ankle socks.
Tights – Tights are to be black.

Skirt – The College tartan skirt is the only style of skirt that may be worn. The skirt must be worn so that it covers the knee when seated. The skirt is available in two lengths. Please ensure that you purchase the length that meets these expectations. Skirts maybe worn with black tights. Under no circumstances are leggings are to be worn under skirts.
Plain white collared shirt – Shirts must be worn tucked in with all buttons fastened to the neck.

Denim, leather, imitation leather jackets, tracksuit tops and hoodies are not acceptable. Coats should not display any inappropriate logos. In cold or wet weather appropriate hats and scarves may be worn to and from College.
Hair – If longer than collar length, hair must be tied back in situations where it could cause a danger to the individual or others, such as in PE and other practical lessons. Extreme fashion hairstyles (e.g. very short crew cut, decorative shaved elements or motifs) and extreme hair colours are not allowed (e.g. hair must be of a natural colour).
Jewellery - Students are permitted to wear a maximum of one small discreet stud earring in each ear and one finger ring of plain design, all of which must be removed for practical and PE lessons. No other items of jewellery, including facial piercing jewellery or retainers are permitted under any circumstances. We accept no liability for jewellery brought into College.

Sixth Form Students:
Rationale: Smart students, who take pride in their appearance, are a role model to younger students. Taking pride in their dress will prepare them for the world of work, where smartness is an expectation.
All students must wear their lanyard and I.D. badge so that it is noticeable at all times unless they are taking part in an educational activity where it is unsuitable to wear one. Failure to adhere to these rules may result in students being sent home to change into acceptable clothing, or working in isolation until changes can be made.
For full details please see Uniform Policy below.
Advance warning for September 2021
Advance notice that from September 2021 we will expect our students to wear 'traditional', well-constructed, weather-proof, leather or leather-type shoes with a low heel. Trainers - black or otherwise, including popular designs such as Nike Air, Converse or Vans-style shoes - are not acceptable. Please see below regarding unacceptable footwear to avoid confusion.
UNACCEPTABLE Footwear from September 2021:
Converse (or equivalent) leather or canvas boot
Dr Martins (or equivalent) boots
Vans (or equivalent) style leather or canvas trainer
Suede studded shoes
Nike (or other manufacturers) trainers
Adidas (or equivalent) leather trainers
Essentially, we will no longer allow students to wear black leather ‘trainers’. So if you are buying new footwear for school now, please ensure that they are leather ‘shoes’, so that they last into the Autumn.
