Uniform Policy

Stockport School has a long tradition and an excellent reputation. This is mirrored by the school uniform, which we expect to be worn properly both in and around school and on the way to and from school.

We believe that uniform helps to make everyone equal.

The basic current uniform consists of:

  • All students: Single breasted black blazer with the current school badge on the breast pocket, preferably pre-embroidered
  • Boys: Plain white, traditional shirt with a collar (not polo type)
  • Girls: Plain white fitted blouse with a collaror a plain white traditional shirt with a collar
  • All students: School tie (current) – clip-on
  • Boys: Black trousers – traditional style (not stretch, jeans, cord, leggings or ski-pants)
  • Girls: Either black trousers – traditional style (not stretch, jeans, cord, leggings or ski-pants) or a pleated black skirt (reasonable length, not lycra or straight)
  • All students: Flat, all black polishable leather shoes with black soles (no other colour/no coloured areas or logos) - No training shoes whatsoever, no canvas or neoprene material shoes, no backless shoes and no boots or shoes above the ankle (see the school website for an illustration of suitable shoes)
  • All students: Black v-neck pullover, with the school crest (optional for cold weather under the blazer) no cardigans or non-school style jumpers
  • Boys: Plain black or dark grey socks
  • Girls: Plain white/black socks or black/neutral tights. No leggings
  • All students: Outdoor coats, if worn must be weather-proof in a plain, dark colour. Hooded tops are not allowed at any time.

We recommend that all items of clothing and equipment are labelled

General equipment

We expect all students to bring the correct basic equipment to school each day:

  • Exercise books & Textbooks
  • Student Planner
  • Pens, pencils & eraser
  • 15 or 30cm ruler

Very useful extras:

  • Coloured Pencils
  • Coloured Pens
  • English Dictionary
  • French, German or Spanish Dictionary
  • Calculator
  • Angle Measure
  • Compasses

Mobile Phones

Emergency contact with students should be made in the normal way through the school office. Exceptionally, students needing to contact home may make a request to a teacher or to the office to use the school land line. If a student’s mobile phone is brought in to school, it is at the student’s own risk. It should be switched off and out of sight whilst on the school premises and if used or seen, during the school day, it will be confiscated and parents/carers will be contacted in order for them to collect it from the school office during school hours. Personal music equipment is also not allowed in school, and should therefore be kept switched off and out of sight throughout the school day.
