School Uniform

There are many good reasons for wearing uniform; uniform creates an identity, it encourages a feeling of belonging and of having pride in the school and in appearance; it minimises differences and is by far the most sensible, smart and affordable way to dress during school time.  Parental cooperation is essential if we are to achieve this high standard.


All students in Years 7 - 11 are required to wear school uniform and no exceptions will be made.  No student will go to lessons incorrectly dressed.  Any student who arrives at school inappropriately dressed, for example wearing trousers which are tight-fitting or a skirt which is not in the school tartan, will have to change into the correct uniform from stock which we hold in school and parents will be kept informed.  Any persistent refusal to follow the school dress code may result in more serious sanctions being applied, including exclusion.

Everything should be clearly named, including purses and pencil cases.  Backwell uniform, including sportswear for PE, is compulsory for all students in Years 7 to 11; it is designed to be smart, practical, comfortable and affordable.
