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. Any student incorrectly dressed, for example wearing trousers which are tight-fitting, parents will be informed so the uniform issue can be rectified. 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 is designed to be smart, practical, comfortable and affordable.

Please note: From September 2021 students will wear their school uniform every day of the week. On days on which they have PE they will need to bring their PE kit with them to change into as the changing rooms will be back in use.
