3Rossett School believes that all students should attend school smartly dressed in a distinctive way and we expect all our students to wear the clothes specified properly as this communicates a sense of pride in our school. 

The Uniform Policy should be followed at all times when in school or when representing the school.  It symbolises good standards and, in preparing young people for the world of work, it is important for them to recognise the need for appropriate dress.

When selecting the uniform the school has ensured that the choice is simple and unambiguous so that the requirements are easily understood without confusion by students, parents and staff.  The uniform also takes into account cost and ensures that the items are easily obtainable without undue strain on family budgets.  

School uniform is available to view and purchase from Rawcliffes in Harrogate.

The main elements of the Uniform Policy are:

  • Students must not wear jeans, corded jeans, tight trousers, jeggings or leggings, denim jackets or clothes made from any distinctive material either in school or anywhere on the school site.
  • Extremes of fashion are unacceptable.
  • Shirts must be tucked in, collars buttoned up and ties must meet the collar.
  • Plain black shoes, which complement the school uniform, should be worn. Trainers are not acceptable and should not be worn at any point throughout the school day, with the exception of PE.  Parents should note that high heels, backless shoes and any form of boots are not allowed on the grounds of health and safety.
  • No hats.
  • No hoodies (sports hoodies can be worn for PE only).

It is essential that all items of clothing are clearly marked with the student's name. This will enable identification and return if they are misplaced.


Every student needs a strong, suitable bag to carry books, iPads, equipment, PE kit etc.


We ask parents to ensure that all students arrive at school with a minimum of pen, pencil, rubber, ruler and green pen for improving their work.


The use of bikes to travel to school is encouraged.  Bicycle stands are provided by the Sports Centre and students should provide a bike lock to lock their own bike to the stands.


Students should keep any items of significant value with them at all times. We endeavour to ensure the security of students’ possessions and provide a bag room for each year group.                                                                                                                                                                                


Students may wear one small stud in one, or both, ear lobe(s).  No other form of jewellery is allowed. This includes necklaces/bracelets, other than for religious reasons, and any form of facial or body piercing.   Please note that parents and students are requested to respect the rules on jewellery and to have any new piercings at the beginning of the summer holiday to enable jewellery to be removed easily.


Make-up is not allowed – including nail varnish.


Hair colour and style must be appropriate for school. Extremes of fashion in length, style and colour may result in students being sent home or into isolation. Before students have their hair dyed an unusual colour or adopt a different style, parents should consult the appropriate year team to ensure that the colour and style are acceptable.  Tram lines are not permitted.
