The Trinity Handbook

Uniform

Uniform

In specifying school uniform we aim for straightforward and traditional styles to maintain consistency and avoid trends. In matters of hairstyles too we go for orthodox traditional hairstyles, avoiding the long or very short, changing hair colour; the patterned or multi-fashions i.e. no corn/cane row hairstyles. Shaved sections and wedges are not allowed. Grade 2 is the minimum acceptable length and significant changes in length are not acceptable. Hair length for boys should not reach the collar nor touch the eyebrow. 

We seek to maintain a high standard to the end of Year 11 and by supporting us you can avoid the unnecessary expense of ever-changing fashions. 

Please note that a school blazer badge is compulsory and available from the Lower School Office or Schoolwear Solutions priced £8.75.

  1. Trinity Black blazer (no gilt buttons) and school badge. 
  2. Plain charcoal grey skirt of knee length with the school embroidered badge available at Schoolwear Solutions. 
  3. Plain grey V-necked jumper of orthodox style. 
  4. Plain white school shirt (not fitted). 
  5. School tie (available from the Lower School Office for £6.75).

Permanent make-up and eyebrow/eyelash tinting are not allowed. Any 'ear-piercing' must be done in the long summer holidays, as 'sleepers' or 'studs' cannot be worn in school. Inexpensive watches are acceptable.

Pupils in Years 10 and 11 only wear black in place of grey pullovers, skirts and trousers. These must be items of a design which meets uniform requirements. Cardigans and hooded sweatshirts are not permitted. 

Please make sure that every piece of uniform is clearly labelled with your child's name. We cannot accept responsibility if any item is lost but will do our best to find it. We place great importance on a high standard of uniform and encourage pupils to take pride in it and themselves. 

All teachers are expected to enforce school uniform regulations. 

Please note: Although school uniform is not required in Years 12 and 13, acceptable personal appearance is. Students in Years 12 and 13 must dress acceptably as role models for younger students. Whilst pierced ears may be allowed, facial piercings are not. Visible tattoos, dyed hair and extremes of fashion are not allowed. SLT will be the final arbiter of acceptability.
