Football scarves, hooded tops and hats are not to be worn to school.

Jewellery, except wristwatches, should not be worn to school. This includes any form of piercings.

The Headteacher will have the final decision on all uniform issues.

It is important that all items of uniform are named.

In addition, all pupils must have a white, cotton protective workshop apron for practical work in Design Technology.  This can be bought from any outlet.  Also to comply with hygiene and food safety regulations, all pupils must have a blue school apron for all practical Food Technology lessons.  This can only be purchased from school to maintain uniformity, at a cost of £6.00.  Pupils should bring the money to their first Food Technology lesson.  In Art lessons pupils may be asked to wear an old shirt to protect their uniform.

Pupils also need a suitable bag in which to carry books to and from school.

Non Uniform Days

Pupils are expected to wear modest and seasonally appropriate dress.  Pupils who are not appropriately dressed may be sent home.  The usual rules with regards to make-up and jewellery will still apply.

  • Shoulders should be covered
  • There should be no bare midriffs or exposed underwear
  • Skirts/shorts should not be too short.
  • No excessively high heels
  • No jewellery
  • No piercings 


Participation in a varied programme of physical activity requires a varied amount of sporting clothing and equipment at Philips High School.  Pupils must bring PE kit to every lesson even if they are injured or excused.  Lessons are adapted to suit each individual case and pupils will be involved in the lesson in some way other than performing.

If you ever have any questions regarding your child’s Physical Education programme, do not hesitate to contact the department.  We will always be pleased to see you and discuss with you any aspect of Physical Education at Philips High.
