School Uniform

Home / Parents / School Uniform

How we look can say a lot about who we are. We are proud to belong to Dean Trust Ardwick, and our appearance is a way of demonstrating pride in ourselves and pride in our school. Just as all staff are expected to follow a professional dress code, in the same way, all pupils are expected to follow their dress code. Wearing our uniform smartly and following school standards on appearance ensures that we are all working together and are proud to belong to our school; it also prepares pupils for the rigours of the world of work, where dress codes are likely to be applied.

There are plenty of ways pupils can express their individuality at school, however uniform and appearance is where we insist on a common identity for all, where fashion does not distract from the purpose of school and does not separate those ‘who have’ from those who don’t. You will find that all Dean Trust schools follow the same uniform and appearance standards. Please note our standards on uniform and appearance are not for negotiation and will not be compromised at any level.
