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 can be purchased from Prestige (see below).
- Skirts should be knee-length (to the knee cap), pleated skirts, with the logo. Uniform skirts can 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.
Please refer to these pictures for more information. Prestige, who supply Harlington uniform items embroidered with the school logo, is based in Flitwick and Barton-le-Clay.
Please refer to these pictures for more information:
Students who wear incorrect uniform run the risk of being excluded from lessons until the issue is rectified.
Thank you for your continued support in ensuring our students are dressed smartly.
