Buxton Community School


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.  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 worn 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/daughter's tutor or Head of Pastoral Care before purchasing.

We consider smart dress and pride in appearance to be very important for all students and we thank parents for their support in ensuring that high standards are maintained.
