School Uniform and Equipment

We believe that our students should wear their school uniform with pride.

We remind students that whilst they are wearing the Sanders Drapers School uniform they represent the school, their peers, the staff and whole school community.

We will not tolerate incorrect or incomplete uniform and we have a policy in place to effectively challenge this.

Blazers must be worn in the building and overcoats removed.

Tie to be worn at all times.

The regulations on this page are intended as a guide to a uniform standard that supports the school's ethos. We cannot legislate for changes in fashion. We must rely on the common sense and support of parents and students in these matters. However, we reserve the right to have the final decision on the question of uniform

If a student attends school wearing incorrect uniform then this will be challenged.

We will provide spare shoes to students. We expect them to wear these if they do not have the correct shoes in school.
