Footwear

It is important that all footwear is suitable for school wear. The following are general guidelines as to what is suitable:

Boys-Footwear

  • Plain flat, black shoes of leather (or leather substitute) and substantial. Black is the only colour and should be the only colour on the shoe. There must be no logos.
  • Boots are not allowed, except in particularly inclement weather conditions (very icy/snowy).
  • No training shoes, pumps or plimsolls are allowed. In particular converse or similar footwear must not be worn.

Girls-Footwear

  • Plain flat, black shoes of leather (or leather substitute) and substantial. Heel height is no more than one inch. Black is the only colour and should be the only colour on the shoe. There must be no logos.
  • Boots are not allowed, except in particularly inclement weather conditions (very icy/snowy).
  • No training shoes, pumps or plimsolls are allowed. In particular converse or similar footwear must not be worn.

Hairstyles

Hairstyles should be acceptable for everyday school wear. The following are general guidelines as to what is suitable:

  • Excessively long hair (male or female) should be tied back, away from the face. Hair can get caught in narrow spaces such as doors, it can be a real health and safety issue in certain lessons (PE, Food and Science, for example) and it can cause health problems in the food service areas in the Hall at lunchtime;
  • Hair colour should always be a natural shade – bright and multicoloured hairstyles are not allowed. Any type of ‘cult’ or extreme hairstyle/ cut is also unsuitable for school;
  • Excessive amounts of product (gel, hairspray, etc) are not allowed. Neither are hair ornaments such as large decorative clips or headbands with similar adornments. Plain black bobbles, clips and headbands only are allowed;
  • Boys, if they wish to have very short hair, should ask for a cut above a ‘number two’ if hair is to be cut using clippers.

Make-up

Make-up should not be worn by girls from Years 7 to 8 at all. From Years 9 to 11, subtle* make-up may be worn. Anyone who does not comply will be given hypoallergenic wipes to remove the make-up. False eyelashes are not allowed. Anyone who does not comply will be required to remove the false eyelashes. Nail varnish and false gel (shellac) nails are not allowed. Anyone who does not comply will be required to remove the nail varnish. Hypoallergenic nail varnish removal will be available for this purpose.

*The school reserves the right to decide what is considered subtle.

Jewellery

No jewellery is to be worn by either male or female pupils, apart from a watch if desired. No piercings of any kind are allowed.

Trinity Sixth Form Dress Code

While attending any of the Trinity Sixth Form Schools Sixth Formers may wear casual or smart clothing. To reflect the fact that we are a working environment we ask that the following guidelines are followed:

  • No clothing with inappropriate, suggestive or controversial slogans or designs eg. reference to sex, drugs, alcohol etc.
  • No low cut, off the shoulder, cropped or strappy tops – shoulders should be covered.
  • No tracksuits or jogging bottoms.
  • No light coloured or ripped jeans.
  • No skirts of indecent length.
  • No flip flops or beach wear. If shorts are worn they should be tailored to the knee.
  • No caps or hats to be worn in the buildings.
  • Tattoos should be covered. Jewellery should be subtle and hairstyles not extreme.

As there is no set Trinity uniform to identify Trinity Students it is an essential safeguarding requirement for all Sixth Form students to visibly wear their student ID lanyard to be recognisable to all students and staff at all of the Trinity Schools.

The home school reserves the right to send a student home if their attire is deemed inappropriate.

What is NOT acceptable

  • Any ‘fashion’ item of any sort is not suitable for school or college;
  • If an item of uniform is temporarily missing, please ensure your child has a note of explanation and that the item is located as soon as possible;
  • Caps may be worn to protect pupils from the sun but these must be either blue or white in colour and be free from any logo;
  • Outer garments such as scarves and gloves can be worn in conjunction with coats but they are not to be worn on their own. Outer garments are not to be worn from lesson to lesson or during lessons.
