Purpose

We believe that school uniform helps create a sense of identity and encourages self respect.  Smartly dressed young people give a good impression of themselves and their school.

We rely on the support of parents in ensuring that our young people come to school dressed appropriately.

Our Uniform

Plain black skirt or trousers (see notes)

Persian blue polo shirt with Chantry Logo (Purchased from school only)

Chantry High school jumper and/or black school zip-up top with Chantry logo (Purchased from school only)

Plain black leather shoes with medium or low heels

Plain dark jackets or coats and / or waterproof PE jacket (with Chantry logo)

Summer Uniform

During the Summer term when the weather is a lot warmer the following may be worn:

Boys can wear appropriate black school shorts (not cargo or leisure shorts)

Girls can wear appropriate black knee length skirts or black knee length shorts

The school has a supply of footwear which students will be required to wear if they come to school without black leather shoes.  The only exception is when a medical doctor’s note is produced.

If a pupil is well enough to attend school they are still expected to bring their kit so they can still participate in the lesson in some way (e.g. as coach, referee etc).
