Uniform

Every student at Victoria College dresses smartly in the appropriate uniform. Students are ambassadors for the College and dress and behave in a way that reflects the standards and values we seek to achieve.

Uniform Policy

In Years 7-10, the uniform is distinctive with its gold braided blazer. In Year 11 and in Sixth Form, students present a business image in line with our standing in the community; a matching suit – black, dark grey or dark blue – is worn.

College Prefects only are permitted to wear a coloured waistcoat, underneath their suit.

During inclement weather coats and hats may be worn; these must be plain. This helps maintain the high standard of appearance of our students. Hooded tops are not permitted.

Uniform should be smart, with all items clearly labelled. If there are any problems with attending school in the correct uniform College must be notified in writing by parents/carers.

Hair must be kept neat and tidy, covering the scalp. Long hair must be tied back for PE, Science and DT/Art lessons, and kept clear of the face at all other times using an alice-band or hair tie. Extreme hairstyles are not permitted. Hair colour must be a natural colour – bleached blonde hair is not permitted. Facial hair is limited to sideburns (not beyond the bottom of the ear), and during the month of November, to support the ‘Movember’ charity, a moustache can be sported by Sixth Form students only. Religious exemptions apply.

Jewellery, including friendship and charity wrist bands, is not permitted for Year 7-11. Students may wear a watch and medical bracelet if appropriate. Sixth Form students may wear a signet ring. Piercings of any kind are not permitted in Y7-11. Sixth Form students may have up to two piercings per ear, with small, plain stud earrings during the school day (no gemstones or diamante).

In line with the Mobile Phone Policy, pupils are not permitted to wear headphones or earphones during the school day (08:25-15:25).
