Full uniform is compulsory for all students from Foundation Stage up to and including Year 11.
All tops, including T-shirts, polo shirts, sweatshirts and fleeces must be purchased from the College. Extra outdoor coats are acceptable during the cold weather, but all students should have at least one fleece and a sweatshirt. We strongly recommend that children try all items for size prior to parents ordering school uniform. A range of items in all sizes will be available in the primary office for this purpose.
If recommended items of clothing such as trousers, shorts and skirts are not purchased from the College they must adhere to the following guidelines:
- Navy blue colour-primary, navy blue or black-secondary. No denim, decoration or pattern
- Skirts and shorts must be just above or below the knee
- Footwear, including trainers, must be suitable for school; black, white or dark blue with no obvious decoration
- Socks and tights must be navy blue or white (or black in secondary)
- XIC school bags must be used for swimming kit (primary)
Long hair must be tied back; bright coloured streaks are not acceptable. Discreet ear-rings only, no other piercings or tattoos are allowed.
All items of uniform must be clearly marked with the child’s name.
Key Stage 5 (Y12/13)
The college is an educational institution for teaching and learning. Although uniform is not compulsory, it is important that senior students dress appropriately. Dress that would be quite acceptable at a social event such as a disco or on the beach is not suitable for school. All students are expected to dress smartly and be a credit to themselves and the college.
The following are not appropriate and must not be worn in college. This list is not exhaustive - from time to time as fashions change so other items may be added. Remember, it is a place of work.
mini-shorts / beach shorts short mini-skirts or dresses
cut-off, ripped or holed trousers T-shirts with unsuitable logos
headgear inside the building long chains
low-cut or off the shoulder tops bare midriffs
leggings with mini skirts
