Our Uniform

The school uniform requirements have been drawn up to achieve a good standard of dress without the burden of a high cash outlay. Students are part of a learning community at Denbigh and wearing the uniform is vital to feeling a sense of belonging in our community.  Students are expected to wear the prescribed school dress within school and on journeys to and from school.   A full list of uniform requirements is stated in our Behaviour Policy and is also set out below.

Uniform checks are held regularly and students not wearing the correct uniform will to go into isolation until the matter is resolved.  Parents/carers should note that just because an item is sold within a school uniform section in a shop does not mean that it complies with the Denbigh School uniform requirements.

General uniform requirements:

  1. All articles of clothing should be clearly marked with the student’s name.
  2. Jewellery must not be worn in school.  It is dangerous in PE and some practical lessons. The only exception is a small pair of stud earrings – (one stud in each ear).  There must be no other visible piercings – this includes tongue piercings and any type of ‘stretchers’.
  3. Extremes of hair colour and hairstyle or patterns (including lines) are not allowed.
  4. Plain white t-shirts only may be worn underneath the school shirt in extreme cold weather.
  5. If a belt is worn it should be in accordance with school uniform colours.
