The school requires students in Years 9, 10 and 11 to wear formal uniform.
Real importance is attached to this aspect of school life, since the wearing of a uniform is an outward sign of the student’s commitment to the school.
Students have to wear the correct school uniform and be consistently smart in their appearance. The school uniform can accommodate faith requirements.
Blazers, ties, jumpers and PE kit must be purchased from our official school uniform suppliers but other items of uniform are available more widely.

Main School Dress Code from September 2019
- Trousers and skirts must be plain black. Trousers must be full length and tailored at the waist, no cargo pockets, and not excessively long, flared, low waisted, baggy or skin tight. Skirts are to be the approved style and box pleated.
- Blouses and shirts must be white. All shirts must be tucked in and worn smartly. If a T- shirt skin is to be worn under a school shirt in cold weather then it must be white, with no visible logos and not visible at the neck.
- Alternatively an optional fitted blue jumper with school logo and purchased from our suppliers will be available to wear under the compulsory blazer should individuals prefer this for warmth. There is no obligation to purchase this item. Jumpers can only be worn after the October half term.
- The school blazer is a compulsory piece of uniform which must be worn at all times and is purchased from our uniform suppliers.
- School tie (boys only) - blue with the school logo, worn in a "business” style and not as part of an open neck shirt. Ties should be properly done up with the visible part of the tie approximately 30cms in length.
- Shoes should be black. Fashion boots, trainers, skate/leisure shoes, mules or flip flops are not allowed. Any uncertainties should be clarified by contacting the school before the end of term. Socks should be black or white. Tights should be black; footless tights of any length are not allowed.
- Headwear, other than faith requirements, is not permitted inside the school buildings.
- Outer wear should be smart. This aspect of the school uniform is especially important, since it is the outsider’s view of Corfe Hills School.
- A student’s general appearance should be suitable for school: no “extremes of fashion” in makeup or hairstyles, including colour, are allowed. Jewellery should be minimal: only one discreet necklace and one bracelet and one ring on each hand. We allow no more than one small, suitable stud style earring per ear. No other facial piercing is permitted.
PE Kit is also supplied via our uniform suppliers and the list of compulsory items is below.
- All students should have a pair of training shoes suitable for use in the sports hall and a pair of studded shoes for the playing field. Skate leisure shoes are not acceptable.
- All long hair is expected to be tied back in lessons. All jewellery is to be removed for safety reasons. Failure to do so will result in a sanction.
- Football - it is highly recommended that all students playing football should wear studded shoes and shin guards. For any student playing in a competitive situation, this would be mandatory.
- Hockey - shin guards are recommended for all students when playing hockey and a gum shield is also highly desirable. Team players must have shin guards and gum shields.
- Rugby - the wearing of gum shields is recommended by the RFU for any student involved in contact rugby.
