Notice to Parents: The Education Trust has a bursary to assist parents in receipt of benefits to purchase school uniforms.  If you are eligable, please fill in this form: School Uniform Bursary.pdf


Hadley Learning Community believes that the pride our students take in their appearance is a reflection of their attitude to their studies. For 2017/18 we are releasing our new school uniform as voted for by our students. The student body decided to make changes to a more formal uniform code and this was wholeheartedly supported by our parents and governors during a consultation

With this in mind we would like to thank you for supporting us to maintain our excellent standard of uniform and appearance.  However we would also like to take this opportunity to remind you of our expectations, as outlined below:

Uniform

School uniform should not be confused with current ‘fashion’!

Students should travel to and from school in full uniform i.e.

  • Black HLC Blazer with the HLC logo
  • White shirt – with the top button fastened
  • School tie – house colours
  • Black trousers for boys or girls OR black skirt (knee length) for girls
  • Black shoes – No trainers or pumps. Any brand such as Nike, Adidas and Converse will be classed as trainers. Please purchase plain and traditional leather school/work shoes.
  • School bag with the HLC logo

Equipment

(In a HLC school bag – students can also lease a locker in September if they wish)

  • Pen
  • Pencil
  • Small Ruler
  • Rubber
  • Pencil Case
  • PE Kit /Dance kit (on the relevant, timetabled days)

We DO NOT allow the following:

  • Short skirts (no shorter than 2cm above the knee.)
  • Skinny’ or tight trousers
  • No jeans/Denim
  • Tracksuit trousers
  • Extra-wide flares
  • Trainers
  • Wide belts
  • Jewellery and elaborate hair decorations

Appearance

Again we would ask you to ensure that students arrive at school looking smart.

We do not allow the following:

  • Strongly coloured or streaked hair
  • Shaven heads
  • Razor markings in the hair or eye-brows
  • Make-up
  • Nail varnish/ fake nails
  • Body and facial piercings
  • Earrings (one pair of small stud earrings is allowed)
Our Muslim students have slight changes to their dress code:-

The Girls may wear a black or navy headscarf and a white kazeem instead of a shirt or polo-shirt. Secondary girls are expected to wear a tie and fleece with their kazeem.

The Girls may also wear a special swimsuit designed for muslim girls.

Girls in PE may wear blue tracksuit bottoms.

Muslim Boys all wear the normal school uniform

We reserve the right to isolate any student breaking these rules or to send any persistent offenders home.

If you would like further clarification, please do not hesitate to email me on jenny.hornsby@taw.org.uk

Thank you for your support.
