HARLINGTON UPPER SCHOOL

    Uniform

    At Harlington Upper School we have high expectations of our students in terms of their behaviour and work ethic.  As such we expect all students to attend school wearing the correct uniform. 

    I would like to draw your attention to the following:

    • Trousers should be tailored, formal trousers, made from a rigid fabric, with the school logo.  They must not be skinny fit, stretchy, jeans or leggings. Uniform trousers should be purchased from Prestige (see below).
    • Skirts should be knee-length (to the knee cap), pleated skirts, with the logo.  Uniform skirts should be purchased from Prestige (see below)
    • Shoes need to be plain black leather/leather type formal shoes (i.e. can be polished).  They cannot be trainer style (e.g. Vans, Converse etc) even if leather.  No canvas.  Kickers or Doc Martin shoes (not boots) are permitted.
