North Bridge House Uniform
At North Bridge House, we are proud of our students and expect them to wear the smart uniform or business attire that identifies them as members of our school community. We encourage pupils to take pride in their appearance and kindly ask parents to support this.
All Senior School pupils from Year 9 to Year 11 should wear the traditional North Bridge House uniform and have a sports kit for P.E. and Games. Sixth Formers in Years 12 and 13 should wear smart business attire. Pupils must wear correct uniform on arrival to and departure from school, with shirts tucked in and top buttons done up. Pupils who are attending school functions or excursions must wear school uniform, unless told otherwise.
Pupils who are allergic to the material of the uniform are allowed to wear a substitute, providing it is as close to the original in appearance as possible. If your son or daughter is unable to wear the correct uniform, please submit a note so that their class teacher is aware of this.
Please ensure that every item of clothing and equipment (including footwear and sports kit) is clearly marked. The school cannot take responsibility for unmarked items.
Jewellery and Hair
Jewellery is not permitted unless it is one simple necklace of recognised religious significance. Pupils should not wear earrings and piercings of any sort should be done during school holidays and must be removed for school. Confiscated jewellery will be returned at the end of term.
Hair should not be of a significantly unnatural or inappropriate colour. For health and safety reasons and general smartness, long hair should be tied back and false nails are not permitted. Make-up and nail varnish are not be worn in school. Tattoos should be covered and not visible.
If the school deems a pupil’s appearance inappropriate, the pupil may be sent home.
