School Uniform

To help all students to develop a sense of pride in their appearance and to establish good standards of dress, work and behaviour, we believe the wearing of the correct school uniform is important.

We would ask parents to ensure that students avoid wearing fashion accessories and that hairstyles are conservative. In addition girls in Years Seven, Eight and Nine should not wear make-up and we ask that jewellery be limited to one ring and plain stud earrings.

By applying to attend The Helena Romanes School, parents/carers and students agree to adhere to our uniform code; no other clothing may be worn. If parents/carers have any financial difficulties in this matter, then please contact the school.

Uniform is to be purchased only from authorised suppliers. Alternatives are not acceptable.

Uniform must be worn in full and correctly at all times, including in lessons, and to and from school whether on a school or public bus, walking or using another means of transport. Blazers and ties may be removed when playing outside during morning break or lunch break but must be put back on when entering the school buildings. Blazers may only be removed during lessons with the express permission of the teacher in a particular lesson and must be put back on when leaving that classroom.

For the avoidance of doubt, wearing the uniform correctly means that blazer sleeves must not be rolled or pushed up, shirt sleeves must not be rolled or pushed up, shirts must be tucked in, kilts must not be shortened or rolled up, all shirt buttons must be done up; modifications to the uniform are not acceptable. Kilts are available in two lengths: 20 (twenty) inches and 22 (twenty-two) inches; the appropriate length must be worn. Students taller than 5’4” will be expected to wear the longer length; skirts must not be shortened in any way.

PLEASE ENSURE THAT ALL ITEMS OF CLOTHING AND PERSONAL PROPERTY ARE CLEARLY MARKED WITH YOUR CHILD’S NAME.
