Headlands School Uniform Requirements

All students in Years 7-11 are expected to wear school uniform. We look to parents to support us in maintaining good standards of dress. Wearing school uniform encourages a positive attitude to school and work. The information below describes Headlands School Uniform requirements.

  • Black blazer with school logo*
  • Headlands School tie in red and black stripe
  • Plain, collared white shirt
  • Black V-neck jumper or cardigan (optional)**
  • Black Trousers
  • Black flat shoes
  • Charcoal grey pleated skirt***

*Headlands School will provide students with a free iron-on logo. Blazers are compulsory.
** Students can choose to wear a V-neck jumper or cardigan with or without the Headlands School logo on it, but this is optional.
***If skirts are deemed too short they must be replaced by parents/carers or black trousers must be worn.

Jewellery

The wearing of jewellery is restricted as in some cases it may pose a health and safety risk; in addition some jewellery may be expensive and the school cannot be held responsible for loss or damage. Consequently jewellery is limited to:

  • A watch (Not a smart watch)
  • A single signet ring
  • Simple ear stud.

Make up

Only discreet make up is allowed. Students cannot wear blusher, contour, eye shadow, lipstick, lip liner, eye liner, eye brow pencil or false eyelashes. Nail polish, gel, acrylic or other forms of false nails are not allowed.

Students should not dye their hair bright colours.

Adaptations

Students have always tried to adapt the school uniform to their individual tastes, it is important that we maintain a standard uniform. The following are examples of such adaptations and are not allowed:

  • Trousers – denim, canvas, jogger, leggings
  • Skirts – lycra, excessively short
  • Shoes – trainers with logo’s, stripes, boots of any kind, canvas pumps, coloured sidewalls, piping
  • Tights – footless or skin coloured

In addition students will often add fashion belts, large ear rings, bangles, wrist bands, beads, necklaces and a variety of hats. These are also not allowed - appropriate hats can be worn outside the school building when the weather is cold. Base ball style caps are not permitted in the school grounds.
