Everybody has been given information about the St Columb’s College uniform.  It is very important that you know how to wear the uniform correctly. 

The school uniform consists of:

  • Black blazer with College crest.  The blazer must be worn at all times on the school corridors;
  • Black trousers of conventional cut (no cords or jeans). Trousers must be worn in a conventional manner at the waist;
  • Grey or white shirt, fully tucked in, with the top button fastened and with the appropriate Key Stage tie worn to the top;
  • The appropriate Year badge which must be visible at all times.  This badge remains the property of the school and must be replaced immediately if lost or mislaid;
  • Grey v-necked pullover (if worn);
  • Any conventional style of shoe or boot which must be wholly black. 

In addition:

  • Badges or emblems which are not school-related are not permitted on school clothing;
  • Belts (if worn) must be wholly black and with a conventional buckle;
  • Outlandish hairstyles or colours are not permitted - hair must be neat and presentable, and in keeping with the standards expected by the Principal.  For health and safety reasons long hair must be tied back at all times;
  • Ear-rings, studs or other visible piercings etc. must not be worn;
  • Only the approved school uniform should be worn inside the school building between 9.10 a.m. and 3.30 p.m.  This means that hooded tops and outside coats must be removed on entering the school building.

In St Columb’s we take pride in everything we do from keeping the school and its grounds tidy (we’ve won lots of awards for that!) to keeping uniforms neat.
