UNIFORM 

All pupils in Years 7–11 at Newman RC College wear the full uniform. Wearing your uniform smartly and with pride helps us to belong to our College community. The College is a place of work and a smart appearance is expected at all times. We ask that additions are not made to the uniform and that parents encourage pupils to wear their uniform in the correct way. Uniform sets the atmosphere for learning.

OUTDOOR CLOTHING

The College blazer is ESSENTIAL at all times. An outdoor coat is also advisable, particularly during inclement weather.

  • Outdoor coats must be black or navy blue and should not contain any large scale graphics or lettering anywhere on the coat.

  • Hooded tops are NOT ALLOWED.

JEWELLERY

In the interests of health and safety, NO JEWELLERY IS PERMITTED. For the same reason, ALL OTHER BODY PIERCINGS (EVEN THOSE NOT VISIBLE) ARE STRICTLY FORBIDDEN. These are inappropriate for College and pupils will be instructed to remove them regardless of any time required for the piercing to establish.

HAIR AND MAKE-UP

Extreme hairstyles are not allowed. These include shaved, extreme colours or patterns/lines in the hair. In practical activities, long hair must be tied back for safety reasons. Make-up, false tan, acrylic nails and nail varnish are inappropriate for College and MUST not be worn.
