The school has a dress code that all students are expected to follow. There is an emphasis on being clean, tidy and presentable. Students should recognise that conflict over the dress code is inappropriate. Our dress code is practical and allows a choice within very clear boundaries. The dress code applies both within school and on the journey to and from school.

In general, jewellery is inappropriate at school and should not be worn. However, students can wear: 

  • a plain watch. 
  • a single stud in each ear. These studs should be small and gold or silver-coloured.  

For safety reasons, studs should be removed for PE and Games lessons.  Other earrings and rings are not to be worn and other body piercings, such as nose studs, or piercings at the top of the ear are not allowed. If you arrive at school wearing these items, you will be asked to remove them immediately.  Please note that the fact a piercing has not healed is not an excuse for it to stay in. Consider this carefully before spending the money on such a piercing.

Make-up (which includes false eyelashes), nail varnish and nail extensions are not permitted. Extreme hairstyles such as bright colours or tram lines are not allowed. To avoid embarrassment or unnecessary cost, if a student or parent is in any doubt about a hairstyle, or the  purchase of an item of clothing, they should speak with their Head of Year before going ahead. Students will be asked to rectify any hairstyle, or replace any clothing at their expense, that is perceived to be unsuitable   for school. All students are strongly advised to label all items of clothing.

We welcome your co-operation in maintaining the smart appearance of our students.

Personal Possessions

Personal possessions, including cycles, mobile phones and iPods, are not covered by the school’s insurance and students should exercise caution in what they bring to school. Where mobile phones are brought to school we will expect them to be turned off between 8.20am and 3.00pm. Students who cycle to school are advised to wear a suitable cycle helmet and must ensure that the bicycle is in a roadworthy condition with effective brakes and for dark mornings and nights, functioning lights.

***The wearing of school uniform while travelling to and from school and during the school day will be compulsory. Oakbank expects all students to take pride in themselves and their school and be clean and tidy in appearance at all times.***

P.E. & Games:

As well as the full PE uniform, each student needs to have the following:
 

  • Mouth guard - widely available from the majority of good sports shops and among other brands, Shock Doctor mouth guards are a popular ‘boil and bite’ option. They should come in their own case, which needs to be labelled clearly with your child’s name on it.
  • Shin pads and football boots - these will be required when the pupils play football, rugby and all 3G activity.
     
  • A black base layer (optional) - to wear underneath their PE kit as this will provide additional warmth and comfort during lessons in the colder months.
     
  • Trainers.
