Black v-neck jumper with Noadswood logo and/or black Noadswood blazer
All students have the option to wear either/or the black v-neck jumper with Noadswood logo, or a black blazer with the Noadswood logo on the pocket. Students may also choose to wear both the jumper and blazer. No hoodies or zip up jumpers to be worn.
You can either purchase these directly from Skoolkit, or alternatively from high street retailers and collect an iron on badge for free from reception (will be in stock shortly, we’ll update when they are available)
Plain white shirt
Plain white shirt with a collar and either short or long sleeved. No t-shirts.
Noadswood school tie with the coloured stripes of your House (prefects may wear the Noadswood prefect tie)
Plain black, tailored, loose fitting trousers. No jeans, skinny trousers or corded type trousers.
If you choose to wear a skirt, we ask that all Year 7 wear the Noadswood school skirt. This is available from Skoolkit and is embroidered with the Noadswood badge. For students in years 8–11, we know that you may already have a school skirt. We ask that when you replace this skirt, you do so with the Noadswood skirt embroidered with the badge as above. All skirts should be black and knee length. Skirts should not be rolled up at any time.
Black tailored shorts can be worn until the October 1/2 term and after Easter.
Socks must be a plain, dark in colour and a matching pair, to be worn below the knee and not over tights. Tights must be plain in black with no patterns.
Shoes are permitted only if they are completely black, including the soles, logo, laces and trim. Shoes should be in a leather type finish, not canvas/plimsoll material.
Our preference is that shoes should fully enclose the foot (no sandals, flip flops, open toes or backless styles allowed for health and safety reasons). Footwear should not be a boot, platform style or have a high heel.
If there is a medical reason as to why a student is unable to wear school shoes, parents must contact your child’s Year Leader, giving the reason and the expected date on which their child will be back in full uniform. If you require financial support please to contact our Pastoral Team.
Coats to be worn on top of the school blazer. No denim jackets, leather coats or sport jumpers / hoodies.
PE Specific Uniform
All years: school rugby shirt, plain black shorts, knee-length red socks, white socks and training shoes. Years 8 and 9: white polo shirt with the Noadswood badge. Years 10 and 11: black polo shirt with Noadswood badge. The infographic below will hopefully help with regards to the footwear for PE. We ask parents to purchase boots that are suitable for our astro AND field. Please use the image below as a visual reference.
*For our new year 7 intake – class of 2022
Knee length socks will now be black.
There are three options for polo tops that cater for a range of budgets:
- Branded PE polo tops from Skoolkit, which will be in black with house colour sides
- You can buy a plain black polo from your choice of high street supplier and collect a free house badge to iron on (available soon)
- Don’t worry if you have our normal white PE tops, these are fine too! Whilst they will no longer be available through Skoolkit, we have plenty in our second hand sale
No jewellery other than a pair of small stud earrings. Hoop earrings, ‘drop’ earrings, necklaces and bracelets are not permitted for health and safety reasons. Where a student has a piercing not in line with the school policy, they will be expected to remove it or wear a small clear plastic retainer. A wrist watch or medical alert can be worn. No other piercings are permitted.
Discreet make-up may be worn by students in Year 10 and 11 only. Nail varnish and acrylic nails should not be worn by any student.
Students are expected to maintain their hair at a suitable length and style i.e. no shorter than grade 2 and no tramlines. If hair is dyed, colours should be restricted to those found in natural hair.
We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that you will also need to bring your own stationery equipment - particularly important this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We will not be able to lend equipment to students. We will have a small stationery shop on site in which you can purchase basic items, but do what you can to get yourself kitted out.
We ask that you bring your own:
- Pen x2
- Scientific calculator
We also recommend that you bring your own glue stick and small pair of scissors. Subject departments will have a very small number of these items which can be used in classrooms but if you are able to bring your own, this will be really helpful.
