Full Length, Plain Grey or Black Tailored School Trousers or Mangotsfield School Skirt: Students wearing skirts must wear black tights (40+ denier). Skirts must not be rolled up. Trousers must be grey or black and cover the ankle. Styles such as carrot, tapered, seven/eighths are not permitted.

White, Button-up, Full Collared Shirt: Shirts can be short or long sleeved and should have buttons to the neck for tie wearing. All shirts must be tucked in at all times. The top button must be done up on shirts, and the tie done up to cover the fastened top button.
Plain Black Footwear: Black polishable leather or leather-look shoe.(please images below) or plain non-branded black trainers. No sports branded shoes / trainers (such as Vans, Converse, Adidas, Nike, Lonsdale, Reebok, Puma, Slazenger) – this list is not exhaustive. Shoes are to be only black in colour. No canvas shoes or boots are permitted.
Plain School Bag (large enough to hold an A4 folder) and Pencil Case: Plain school bag and pencil case, containing pens, pencils, eraser, ruler and a calculator, with no offensive logos.
Outdoor Coats and Hoodies: Outdoor coats may be worn when the weather warrants, but should not be worn instead of a blazer or the school jumper. If a coat is worn, it should be plain and smart (offensive logos are not allowed). Denim and leather coats should not be worn.
Hoodies are not permitted as outdoor coats. Hoodies and non school jumpers and sweatshirts are banned from school and must be removed before entering the school gate. Hoodies and sweatshirts acting as coats will be confiscated and taken to visitor reception for students to collect at the end of the school day. If a student repeatedly wears a hoody, this will be confiscated until the end of term and will need to be collected by the parent/carer.
Optional and preferred
Plain Black Belt: If wearing a belt it must be black leather or leather-look belt with a buckle that has no logo on, and no studs. We recommend wearing a belt to help shirts stay tucked in.
Black Socks: Preferably, when wearing trousers, socks should be black and plain. Trainer socks are not allowed
On all of these aspects, the School’s decision is final. As fashions change we reserve the right to update our uniform policies as and when required.
