We are proud of our uniform at De Lisle and we expect all our students to show their pride by wearing the uniform correctly at all times. All students need to be properly dressed in the correct college uniform. The Headteacher’s decision about what is acceptable in terms of dress or appearance is final.

If students are incorrectly dressed, they will not be allowed to attend lessons and must work in the Behaviour Improvement Unit until they are dressed according to the uniform policy.

  • Standard college skirt, to be worn at knee length.
  • Smart, black tailored trousers. (not jeans or leggings).
  • Smart black tailored shorts.
  • Plain white school shirt tucked into trousers or skirt.
  • Plain black socks or plain, natural or black tights.
  • Black blazer with College badge.
  • College tie appropriate to key stage.
  • Black V neck cardigan or sweater (optional).
  • Smart black school shoes.
  • Plain black belt.
  • No facial piercings. Students will be told to remove any facial piercings.
  • Nail varnish, if worn, must be discreet. (No long acrylic/false nails for health and safety reasons)
  • Make-up, if worn must be discreet.
  • Ear piercing – maximum of one stud per ear – no hooped earrings or ear bars.
  • Facial hair should be neat and trimmed.
  • Hair – no excessive styles or unnatural colours.

At De Lisle, students timetabled for outdoor PE lessons will ordinarily be outside, whatever the weather. With this in mind, I would recommend students wear a plain black base layer top and/or bottoms (examples below), to be worn underneath the t-shirt or polo shirt. A small, discrete logo is acceptable on these items.

Long Sleeve Baselayer
Baselayer Bottoms

As football and rugby lessons take place on grass, it is highly recommended that students wear football boots to reduce slipping.

The following items are optional and may be worn:

  • Plain black jogging bottoms, sports leggings (durable, thick, non-transparent) instead of black shorts/skort;
  • Black football socks instead of short white PE socks;
  • Shin pads (for football, hockey and rugby);
  • IRB approved gum shields and scrum caps;
  • Black full zip rain jacket with De Lisle badge*

* Please note that the only items that must have the De Lisle badge on them are the ¼ zip midlayer and the full zip rain jacket. No other jumpers, hoodies or coats will be allowed in PE lessons. 

5 Full Zip Rain Jacket

For health and safety reasons, no jewellery should be worn, nails should be kept suitably short, and any student with hair longer than shoulder length must have it tied back with a bobble.

Physical Education Participation Policy

All students are expected to take a full and active part in PE lessons and must bring a change of kit (that complies with the kit list supplied to parents and carers) to ensure they are fully equipped for the activities taught.

If students are unable to take physical part in PE lessons, for whatever reason, they should bring a medical note or a note from parents/carers, outlining the reason(s) the student cannot take physical part in PE, to their PE teacher.  They must also bring a change of kit (that complies with the kit list supplied to parents and carers) so that they can assist with coaching, officiating, helping with equipment and any other reasonable tasks the teacher asks them to do.  By bringing a change of kit, students will be dressed appropriately for all potential weather conditions.

If there are any issues that cannot be resolved using the directives above, the Head of Department should be notified.

  • No facial piercings. Students will be told to remove any facial piercings.
  • Nail varnish, if worn, must be discreet. (No long acrylic/false nails for health and safety reasons)
  • Make-up, if worn must be discreet.
  • Jewellery, if worn must be discreet
  • Ear piercing – maximum of one stud per ear – no hooped earrings or ear bars.
