Barr’s Hill Uniform

We have high standards of uniform at Barr’s Hill School and expect all students to be dressed correctly and smartly. All students must wear school uniform or the sixth form dress code. Parental co-operation is vital in maintaining high standards.

Our uniform policy:

  • Encourages pride in the school;
  • Supports an orderly school environment;
  • Enables students to be comfortable, safe and secure;
  • Ensures that students’ from different social, religious and ethnic groups feel welcome and included;
  • Prepares students for the world of work;
  • Protects students from social pressures to dress in a particular way.
