Uniform and Equipment
We have an online uniform shop where you can purchase school uniforms and collect them from reception. All pupils are required to wear school uniforms. All items of uniform and PE clothing should be clearly and individually named.
Children are expected to come to school clean and tidy. Discreet make-up may be worn, unacceptable make-up will have to be removed. False nails and brightly coloured nail varnish are not permitted. No unnatural hair colour or lines/shapes shaved into the head is allowed. Facial piercings are not permitted. Large earrings or excessive amounts of jewellery are not allowed.
Saint George’s School is delighted to offer our PE kit range from Tackle Bag, for year 7’s all the way up to 6th form, including BTEC Sport PE kit. If you spend over £60 on Saint George’s PE kit you will get your shipping free!
We expect all of our students to come to school every day in the correct uniform and to bring the correct equipment. All students should be ready to learn on a daily basis. Hoodies are not permitted in school.
PE kits are needed for every practical lesson and must be stored in named bags. A spare kit is provided for students who forget on odd occasions. All pupils must have football or rugby boots for games that are played on the school field, this is for the Health and Safety of each pupil. Pupils who do not bring in the correct footwear will be given boots to wear, and normal sanctions will apply.
School Uniform Shop
The School Uniform shop is now open and run by the Saint George's Eco-committee. The students sell good quality clothes at great prices, in all sizes. They take in donations of unwanted school uniforms and also accept donations in exchange for a size that fits. The shop is located near the Finance Office (by Room) at Lunchtime on Tuesdays. For any queries, please contact Mrs Cuthbert in the School Office: email@example.com.

At times, it may be useful to have a Flash Drive or Memory Stick in order to transport work to and from school if the files are too big to email. This is not a compulsory item and is up to the individual student's choice. It is vital to ensure you have a separate copy of your work saved on a PC hard drive either at home or at school as a backup in case your flash drive is lost or damaged.
You will have to re-do any coursework that is lost if your flash drive is lost or damaged.
Behaviour for Learning card
Every student will be issued a card at the beginning of every new term. Staff may sign this card if students behave inappropriately. This may include not wearing the correct uniform. Those with clean cards at the end of the term will be entered into a prize draw.
