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 table below describes Headlands School Uniform requirements.
- Headlands black V neck jumper or cardigan with Headlands logo
- Standard plain black school trousers or plain black knee length school skirt (no lycra fabric)
- Plain white school shirt or blouse
- Plain black school shoes
- Headlands House Tie
- Lords – Purple
- Millennium – Yellow
- Twickenham – Red

Jewellery and make up
The wearing of jewellery and make up is inappropriate and in some cases 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 restricted to:
- A watch (not a smart watch)
- A single signet ring
- 1 simple ear stud
Students should not dye their hair bright colours.
No make-up, this includes foundation and mascara.
Modification of School Uniform
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, cropped, jogger, leggings, excessively tight, excessively narrow around the ankles
Shoes – trainers, boots of any kind, canvas pumps, coloured side walls, piping, logos, stripes
Tights – footless.
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.
- Food – Bib apron with large black and white check
- Resistant Materials – Bib apron, plain beige or with school logo
