Uniform and Equipment



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) 

Black trousers 

Plain black, tailored trousers. No jeans, leggings, tracksuit or corded type trousers.


If you choose to wear a skirt, our preference would be for you to wear the Noadswood school skirt, which is available from Skoolkit and is embroidered with the Noadswood badge. As an alternative option, you can also purchase a similar style skirt from any highstreet retailer in black and then collect a badge from the school office that can be ironed on to it. Skirts should be worn ideally at just above the knee, and never any higher than mid-thigh.


Black tailored shorts can be worn throughout the year.


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.


Outer coat 

Coats to be worn on top of the school blazer. No denim jackets, leather coats or sport jumpers / hoodies.

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 tramlinesIf 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. Students will be lent equipment if they forget items, but continued missing equipment will result in a sanction. 

We ask that you bring your own:

  • Pen x2
  • Pencil
  • Rubber
  • Sharpener
  • Ruler
  • Scientific calculator

We also recommend that you bring your own glue stick and small pair of scissors. Subject departments will have a 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.
