    Not at school any more but mine was something like this:
    Attachment 702296
    Balzer with school logo on pocket (no rules on having to wear it all the time or anything)
    White shirt tucked in (top button meant to be done up but never was)
    Tie with coloured stripes based on what house you were in (meant to be worn properly but almost always worn lower and with a bigger knot)
    Black trousers or skirt (supposedly knee level but that never happened)
    Black shoes
    We had jumpers/ cardigans, but not many people wore them.
    Girl uniform was later changed to fitted blouse and no tie
    PE kit was a white polo with school logo, black shorts or joggers and any trainers

    Uniform wasn't really enforced. You might have been told to tuck your shirt in or do your tie properly, but nothing came of it if you didn't and most teachers didn't care.

    I'm homeschooled now but went to school until year 9. Ours was :
    blue shirt and school tie
    school logo cardigan/jumper
    ankle length school kilt and green tights
    school blazer
    black shoes (school approved)
    For boys it was similar but tartan trousers instead of a kilt
    I actually liked our uniform, but when I went on the train home the kilt was annoying

    there are so many rules with my school's uniform i can't be bothered to list them. if anyone wants to know anything specific please just ask. the main one is that blazers/jackets must be worn at all times outside of the classroom, and 'skirts can hang no higher than 6cm from the knee when girls are kneeling'.

    Year 7-11:

    Girls - Cardigans/jumper with school logo (most wear cardies), white shirt (supposedly with top button done up but not many do this), knee-length skirt with black tights/ black trousers (most wear trousers), black socks (hardly anyone does this unless their socks are visible from footwear), black shoes, burgundy (ugh...)

    Boys - Blazer with school logo, trousers, everything else the same as above.

    Sixth form:

    Blazers aren't required anymore so both genders either wear a jumper or cardigan (boys mainly wear jumpers). Tie and shoes are still necessary, uniform is black apart from the shirt. Most of us wear jackets even though we're not supposed to.

    What is your school uniform and how strict is it?
    Ours is very strict and we get a detention if we don’t follow any of these (even the smallest things):

    *White shirt, tucked in, buttoned to the top.
    *Or, blouse with school logo, tucked in.
    *Striped tie, only for shirts, tight around collar.
    *Skirt, one style and provider (pleated, knee length), worn with black “pigmented” tights.
    *Or, trousers, dark grey, under ankle, not tight, 3 shops to choose from.
    (We’re not allowed to show any skin except from arms and above shoulders)
    *Socks, black, over the ankle, no logos.
    (Yes we get an after school If we wear trainer socks)
    *Shoes, black (not even a bit of white), no logos, not allowed to be over the ankle, 2” heel max.
    *School jumper, blue and maroon, with logo, tucked out, must have shirt underneath, not to be worn around waist or anything.

    I think that’s it for uniform but don’t get me started on our rules.

    Lol and yes, we do boil in the summer!

    I hope you found what you were looking for?

    Our school is fairly lax on uniform (as much as smt try to upkeep it) but at a basic level it’s shirt and tie with black trousers/skirt and black shoes, our uniform got redesigned 5 years ago and for the first year they insisted we wear blazers but that’s long gone. The old seniors designed our tie which is blue/silver/purple stripes for juniors and purple with a silver strip and school logo for seniors. I think we got fairly lucky on the tie front because ours is actually really pretty lol
