School uniform

Please ensure your child has the correct uniform for September

John Hanson School has a strict uniform policy. As a member of John Hanson School, students should have a sense of pride in themselves and their uniform. Parental co-operation is imperative in order to achieve this. The School expects all students to wear their uniform correctly at all times, which includes the journey to and from school. Any students who is incorrectly dressed will be isolated until the matter is resolved.

We are aware that some suppliers of school uniform do sell ‘slim fit’ trousers as school uniform trousers. However, they are not considered appropriate for school for boys or girls. It becomes difficult to differentiate between slim fit, lycra and legging trousers, which has been the issue this academic year. Skin tight, slim fitting trousers are not permitted.
Chino style trouser are also not allowed as they fade quickly with washing, and take on a denim type appearance. Skirts must be pleated, not ‘skater style’
