Uniform and Professional Appearance

At King’s Hawthornes, ’Professionalism’ is one of our Aspire values. We pride ourselves in our professional appearance because we take real pride in our school. Our uniform is the symbol of who we are. We expect all of our students to share this feeling of pride and belonging and to follow our uniform rules at all times, both in school and on their journeys to and from school, as they represent us and our values in the community.

We ask for parents’ support in ensuring that we work together to maintain the smart and professional appearance of our students. We also ask that all clothing should be marked with the pupil’s name.

Our uniform consists of:
  • Grey pleated knee-length skirt or pinafore or black trousers
  • White shirt
  • Grey jumper with maroon stripe
  • School tie
  • Blazer 
  • Grey socks
  • Plain black polishable shoes
Our PE Kit

The PE kit includes:

  • King’s T-shirt
  • King’s shorts
  • King’s tracksuit bottoms/leggings
  • King’s hoodie

This can be worn to school on days when you have PE lessons. However, if students do not wear the full PE uniform correctly, we reserve the right to withdraw this privilege. If their full and correct PE kit is not available then the school uniform must be worn.

Personal Appearance Standards

Having the correct professional appearance is important to the core purpose of achieving in an academic environment without distraction. Therefore, we require students to follow our rules on appearance.

Jewellery - We allow one pair of stud earrings and a watch; no other jewellery is permitted.

Makeup – We do not allow makeup, nail varnish or false nails.

Shoes - We are very clear that students need to wear black and polishable shoes as part of their uniform; branded footwear and trainers are not alternatives. Please ensure your child has a suitable pair of shoes before commencing school.
