Guidance on College Uniform

Dear Parent / Carer

The wearing of the college uniform is required both during school hours and travelling to and from college.

All clothing should be clearly marked with your child’s name – should your child misplace an item of their uniform; this will help ensure it is returned quickly.

Our college uniform, including our PE kit, is available from Rawcliffes on Roundhay Rd, as well as Uniwears on Harehills Lane.

Student Planner

All students will be given a planner on their first day. Regular monitoring takes place to ensure students using their planner correctly. The planner is an excellent means of communication between home and college and we encourage parents/carers to use it as a means of tracking their child’s progress. If your child loses their planner, a replacement must be purchased from the college.

Students are expected to bring the following to school every day in a school bag:

  • a pencil case
  • black pen, green pen and a purple pen

  • scientific calculator
  • protractor and a compass
  • Spanish & French dictionary (Key Stage 3 – Years 7, 8 & 9)

Bags should be big enough to hold A4 size books and files. Small bags such as boot bags are not suitable.

Mobile phones

Mobile phone and/or headphone use is not permitted in the College. If parents wish their child to bring a phone to school, they must be switched off before students enter the gate at the top of the drive and kept in bags and not switched on until they leave the school building at the end of the day. 


If a member of staff sees a mobile phone, it will be confiscated and the phone will be handed back to the student at the end of the day. This will result in a negative code being given in line with PROUD. The College accepts no responsibility for lost or damaged mobile phones or headphones.
