The rule of thumb when buying school uniform trousers is to avoid these words: 

 

  • ‘tapered’ meaning that they will be shorter than acceptable and too tight at the ankle
  • ‘cropped’ – they will be ankle length and therefore too short
  • ‘skinny’ – these will be far too tight, both at the thigh and ankle.
  • ‘jeggings’ – basically thick leggings.  

Look for the words: Tailored and bootcut.

Shoes

As many parents are starting to consider buying school wear for 2016-17, we are taking this early opportunity to clarify the style of formal shoes which are acceptable to be worn in school from September 2016. Our uniform list states for boys and girls 'polishable formal, plain, black shoes (no boots, trainers or canvas shoes)'. Inevitably shoe manufacturers develop and market as school shoes, styles which circumnavigate this description i.e. introducing informal style, leather, black pumps and it can be confusing as to which are acceptable. 

To avoid confusion, we are clarifying what we mean by formal styles of shoes. From September 2016 the following styles of shoes will/will not be suitably formal for school. The suitable styles are available from a range of different suppliers. Inevitably we can't show images of all shoe styles but hopefully this selection of images will provide helpful guidance when buying school shoes.

 

Formal styles - acceptable in September 2016
