Our school uniform gives a clear message that all our students are part of the Kelmscott community and therefore should be worn with pride. 

Great thought has gone into ensuring that uniform reflects our beliefs in equality but the same time respects individual beliefs and cultures.

To this end we ask that parents/carers give us full support in ensuring their children wear the correct uniform at all times. Full details of the correct uniform requirements are found within the journal.


  • Navy blazer with school badge

  • White formal shirt (short or long sleeve)

  • School tie (different for each year group; colour for new Year 7 is available from Fashion Fair - see below for details).

  • Mid-grey trousers

  • Black shoes (no trainers)

  • Black socks



  • Navy blazer with school badge

  • White formal shirt (short or long sleeve)

  • School tie (different for each year group; colour for new Year 7 available from Fashion Fair - see below for details)

  • Mid-grey tailored trousers or knee length A-line skirt or shalwar kameez

  • Navy blue hijab

  • Black shoes (no trainers)

  • Plain ‘natural’ colour or black tights


It is important that students have the correct equipment/stationary to enable them to complete tasks to the best of their ability at school and home. Not having the correct equipment in class can be very disruptive and a distraction from teaching.

Students need to bring to school everyday in their pencil cases:

2x black pens

1x red pen



Sharpener and rubber



Reading Book

We would also suggest students have access at home to:

Colouring pencils


Valuables and Jewellery

Girls are permitted to wear one pair of small silver or gold stud earrings (one in each ear) no diamond/gemstones should be worn in school. Boys are allowed one stud earring small silver or gold no gemstones/diamonds. Pupils may also wear one small plain discreet ring and a watch. 

Pupils may wear one nose stud which is small plain silver or gold, otherwise there must be no facial jewellery. This is the only jewellery permitted in school. The school is entitled to confiscate any unsuitable jewellery.  

The school accepts no responsibility for banned items brought into school or for items confiscated for inappropriate use. The Headteacher's decision on the appropriateness of uniform, hairstyle and jewellery for school is final.


We expect the support  of all parents in ensuring our uniforms and valuables rules are maintained. If you are unsure of any of the school uniform rules please ask your child's Head of Year prior to purchasing uniform items.
