School Uniform

Chilwell School has a clear uniform policy, all pupils are expected to follow it and take pride in their appearance.

We have worked hard to ensure that our uniform is of a high quality but also reasonably priced. The School Jacket and Tie are available from Morleys in Chilwell or TGR Embroidery in Attenborough, all other items can be purchased from a number of high street outlets and supermarkets.

Below are details of our Uniform Expectations, including items which are not acceptable. Please note that some items sold in high street shops (and online) that are advertised as ‘school wear’ may not comply with our uniform expectations. If you would like clarification before purchasing any item, please contact the school.

Trainers may only be worn during PE lessons; they cannot be worn at any other time in school.  It is recommended that no student wears any jewellery on any day when PE is on their timetable. This should prevent PE staff spending time on security of jewellery when their main concern is student supervision and safety.


Advisory: We advise students to wear a gum shield when playing rugby and shin pads when participating in football.

N.B. (1) We recognise that for religious reasons some students may need to dress in accordance with the wishes of their faith.  The school will seek to respond to these wishes sympathetically providing that education, smartness, health and safety are not compromised.

We regard non-compliance with uniform as a breach of school rules and there are a range of consequences which can be issued as appropriate:

  • confiscation of banned item(s) for collection by student/parent/carer as deemed appropriate

  • having to remove excessive make-up using wipes and make-up remover.

  • removal of excessive or new piercings

  • not being allowed to take part in extra-curricular activities or events

  • being provided with appropriate uniform i.e. dressed incorrectly

  • having to go home to get changed or clothes to be brought in by parent/carer

  • withdrawal from lessons

  • detention

  • exclusion, as a last resort for persistent offenders who refuse to comply.
