Buxton Community School

Uniform

At Buxton Community School, all students in Years 7 to 11 are expected to follow the school dress code.

We believe that a smart uniform, properly worn, is fundamental in supporting what we as a school wish to achieve. In recent years many visitors and members of the public have commended our students for their smart appearance in school and on their way to and from school.  We ask our parents, and expect our students, to support us in this.  At Buxton Community School we are proud of our students and their smart appearance.  We want everyone to wear the correct uniform, and to look smart.  Ties should be done up correctly, shirts buttoned to the collar and tucked in.

Please ensure that all items are marked with your child's name.

Please find below further clarification of our uniform expectations in order to ensure all students look smart and part of our community.

If you are unsure if an item meets our school dress code please discuss with your son/daughters Key Stage/Pastoral Manager before purchasing.

We look to every parent/carer to support us in applying this dress code.
