Uniform

At Chertsey High School, we believe the school uniform achieves three important goals: 

  • It encourages a sense of community identity and pride. By wearing the same badge and the same clothing, pupils are encouraged to think of the needs of the community as well as their own individual needs.
  • It encourages our pupils to develop habits for life. By learning to polish their shoes, fold trousers or hang up their blazers, pupils learn the habits of discipline and personal responsibility that will stay with them for life. 
  • It prevents unkindness or bullying while keeping costs down. 

By requiring all our pupils to wear the same low-cost uniform, we reduce the incentive for pupils to ask parents for the latest (and most expensive) items of fashion. As a result, costs are kept as low as possible and no child can be seen to be poorer or wealthier than any other. However, for our uniform policy to be successful, it must be implemented universally and without exception. Our parents understand this and so support us at home to uphold the School’s high standards.

 

Labelling:

All items of clothing (including bags) must be clearly marked with the pupil’s full name.  Sew-on labels are preferable to iron-on labels and black permanent markers may be used but names should be written large and clear. All items not marked with an asterisk in the uniform and in sports kit lists must be completely plain. No logos, patterns or embellishments of any kind are allowed.

Should there be any questions as to what acceptable school uniform is please contact the school to check before purchase.

 

Boys' Hair:

Pupils’ hair must be in be in a conventional and understated style. Boys’ hair must be no longer than collar length and kept short on top. In addition, there should be no contrast between the top of the hair and the sides. Short sides must be faded gradually into the top of the haircut so there is no noticeable ‘step’ or layering. Some specific styles that are not permitted: 

  •  ‘Skin fades’ where the pupil’s hair is cut below a Number 1 on the sides. 
  • Hair that is teased, backcombed or be covered in excessive product (wax, gel etc.) 
  • Patterns shaved into a pupil’s hair or eyebrows, including an artificial parting. 
  • High or flamboyant hair styles, such as a ‘Mohican’. 
  • Any unnatural colours. 
  • Styles that block the view of others in any way. 
  • Styles that hide the face. 
  • Heavy floppy styles or large quiffs at the front. 
  • Any other hairstyles that the School considers to be inappropriate.

 

Girls' Hair:

Girls’ hair must be also be in a conventional and understated style. All hair accessories should be black or purple only. Some specific styles that are not permitted: 

  • Hair which is below the shirt collar must be tied up.
  • Styles where large bunches, buns or pony-tails on top of the head obscure the views of pupils sitting behind in class. 
  • Bows, flowers or other adornments in the hair. 
  • Gelled edges where the intention is to decorate the hair. 
  • Unnatural colours or extensions. 
  • Styles that hide the face. 
  • Patterns shaved into the pupil’s hair or eyebrows. 
  • Any other hairstyles that the School considers to be inappropriate. 

However, this list is not exhaustive and the School’s decision on what is/is not acceptable is final.

 

School Shoes:

School shoes should be black, flat and logo-free. The style should be traditional, avoiding the appearance of a trainer. Some specific styles that are not permitted: 

  • Styles that appear to be more like sports trainers than professional black shoes. 
  • Boots or ankle boots. 
  • Suede shoes. 
  • Styles that have more than one Velcro-fastener. 
  • Styles with obvious logos or branding. 
  • Elaborate buckles or decorations or patterns. 
     

However, this list is not exhaustive and the School’s decision on what is/is not acceptable is final. If parents are unsure as to whether a particular style will be accepted, they must send a picture of the shoe to the School before purchasing.

If in doubt, please consult the following pictures to see what is/is not acceptable.

Make-up

Pupils must not wear any make-up whatsoever, including eyelash extensions. If found to be wearing make-up of any description pupils will be asked to remove it immediately. Failure to do so will result in immediate referral. Nail varnish of any description, as well as nail extensions, are similarly forbidden. Pupils are not allowed to wear henna. Pupils who come into school with henna visibly adorned on the hands will have to cover this with gloves.

 

Items of religious significance

Mrs. Munnik may grant exceptions to any of the above, but only where this is required as a matter of sincere religious observance and where this can be substantiated by a letter from the leader of the relevant religious community. The School's decision is final.
