A School Blazer is compulsory throughout the school. The only coat you are allowed to wear in school is a blazer. Outdoor coats must be removed inside school buildings.
A pupil's haircut is a very important part of their overall presentation. The school will not accept extreme haircuts. Pupils are not allowed to have extreme hair colours; colour change should appear natural. The school reserves the right to internally exclude students with an extreme hairstyle. Shoulder-length hair should be tied back for all practical lessons. Hair bands should be plain in their appearance. Hair accessories must be only plain white, navy blue or black in colour.
Pupils may wear a wristwatch. They may also wear a cross or other symbol of faith for religious reasons, but it may not be visible. Pupils with medical conditions can wear an identify tag. No badges are to be worn other than those issued by the school and one charity badge. Any inappropriate jewellery will be confiscated and placed in the school safe. The school cannot accept responsibility for the safekeeping of jewellery. All jewellery must be removed for Physical Education.
Make-up and nail varnish are not permitted. Pupils who wear make-up and nail varnish will be asked to remove it. Pupils failing to do so when asked will face appropriate sanctions.
Pupils are not permitted to wear any form of facial or body piercing. Pupils who persistently violate these rules will be internally excluded. Earrings and other piercings covered by plasters are also not acceptable.
All items of daily school uniform can be bought from various specialist shops, including:
• KITTED OUT SCHOOLWEAR, 27 COUNTY ROAD, WALTON (0151 523 8422)
At Hillside we have extremely high standards of uniform. This means that if a students comes in to school without full uniform for any reason they will automatically spend the day away from other students working in isolation in our withdrawal classroom, Seminar Room 2. This is not a punishment, but a way of ensuring that we maintain our high standards at all times.
