School uniform is part of the learning process - it promotes enthusiasm for working and a sense of community. All students are expected to wear the full uniform. The school jumper and blazer are compulsory for all students in Years 7 to 11 and the St Gregory’s school skirt or grey boot cut trousers are compulsory for all girls.
Regular checks are carried out at school to see that the uniform is properly worn. All clothing should be clearly marked with the student’s name.
Students are encouraged to take pride in their school uniform. The school does not allow:
- Fashion extremes, including extreme hairstyles and colours;
- Wearing of make-up, nail varnish, fake nails or fake eyelashes;
- Training shoes (other than all black leather) except for use during PE lessons. Students wishing to play football etc. during break and lunchtime should change their school shoes for trainers and the reverse after the break. This is to prevent a) damage to shoes and b) mud/dirt being brought into the building.
- Jewellery other than one set of small stud earrings (one only in each ear lobe) for girls and/or a small crucifix and chain.

The school has a lost property office for any lost items that have been found and handed in to the school office. The lost property office is located opposite NL2 and open daily from 13.05 to 13.30. All clothing items and property should be marked clearly with the student’s name.
We encourage all parents to sign up to www.FindMyKit.com. Smart tag labels can be purchased which can be ironed into clothing or stuck onto items such as rugby boots, equipment etc. If your tagged item reaches lost property it is scanned and automatically triggers an email/text message to the parent advising them that an item is in lost property.
