School Uniform and Equipment Guidelines

The County High School, Leftwich expects high standards in all aspects of school life, including uniform. All students wear the school's uniform as set out below. Most items are widely available; those unique to this school, marked with a *, are supplied through Sportswear International part of Banner Ltd.

We believe uniform helps instil in students a sense of pride in their school and that it contributes to the learning culture of the school. Consequently, if students repeatedly challenge the uniform standards, it may become necessary to confiscate items and impose appropriate sanctions.

Jewellery is not acceptable in school (except for a watch and, where ears are pierced, one stud in the lower part of each ear.) In addition, extreme hairstyles and colours are not allowed; this includes colours and coloured streaks in un-natural shades.

Should obtaining uniform present difficulties, we ask that parents/carers contact the school.
