We feel that uniform is important to help the students establish themselves as part of the school community. Whilst the uniform should be smart and help give the young students pride in themselves it should also be comfortable, easy to wear and not a source of confrontation between staff and students.

We therefore ask that parents help to support us in this. Our basic new uniform consists of:


  • School blazer
  • White long or short sleeved shirt
  • School tie
  • Black skirt no shorter than knee length
  • Black tailored trousers (not narrow legged)
  • Black or white ankle socks
  • Plain black opaque or flesh coloured tights
  • Black shoes (no trainers).


  • School blazer
  • White long or short sleeve shirt
  • School tie
  • Black trousers
  • Black shoes (no trainers).

All Students:

  • PE kit consists of the following: reversible blue and cream rugby jersey, plain white T-shirt for athletics and gymnastics, black shorts, black socks, white socks, football boots, training shoes and towel. 
  • Girls are permitted to wear black sports leggings - (these must be sports leggings)
  • For Year 7 it is compulsory to have the blue USH T-shirt (not white)
  • Equipment - students will also be expected to have a school bag (those with 2 shoulder straps are advised), a pencil case with pens and pencils, a calculator and small pocket dictionary.

Other information about uniform:

  • Rings, necklaces and bracelets are not permitted.  A watch may be worn.
  • One set of single studs can be worn in each ear. These must be removed for practical subjects such as PE if requested by the member of staff.
  • Trainers are not permitted except for PE.
  • Hair should be clean and tidy.
  • Boys are allowed to grow beards but these should be kept clean and tidy.
  • Girls are not allowed make up in the lower school, as they transfer to the upper school (Years 10 and 11) they will be allowed to wear discreet make up.
  • Extreme styles or fashion statements that the school deems to be unreasonable, along with any hair adornments are not permitted.
