Middle School Uniform

Years 9–11

This photo showcases some of the more commonly worn uniform combinations.

We hope that all St Andrew’s College students are proud to be identified with their school and will wear their uniform correctly.

The College uniform is to be worn correctly at school and when travelling to and from College.

Students are required to:

  • wear their uniform with pride;
  • wear a blazer in the street– this includes moving to and from cars;
  • wear shirts tucked in with the top button and tie done up;
  • wear blouses with the top button and tie done up;
  • wear uniform items which fit appropriately and are not too long or too short;
  • wear approved uniform at Physical Education and sports practices;
  • wear clean and polished black leather shoes in a conservative style with the laces tied or buckles done up.

When travelling with College teams or groups, non-uniform clothing may sometimes be approved, but only in special cases, such as field trips or Outdoor Education camps.

Only white t-shirts, singlets, or thermals under school shirts are permitted. Coloured, patterned or sports socks must not be worn.

Hair and Grooming
Hair must be clean, well-groomed, and in the natural range of colours and styles only. Hair must be kept clear off the face and above the eyebrows.

Male hair must not be longer than the length of the collar at the back, must fall above the eyebrow line, and should be of even length overall. It should be cut in a conservative style and not shorter than a number three comb. Sideburns must not be lower than the earlobe or wider than 2.5cm.
Faces must be clean-shaven.

Long hair on females must be tied back. Hair jewellery is not acceptable. Ribbons and ties must be blue or white. Scrunchies must be black, navy blue or white.

Only females are able to wear one pair of studs or sleepers in the lobe of the ears. Spacer earrings are not permitted. No other rings or studs of any type may be worn by any student. Wristbands, bracelets, finger jewellery, piercings and body art which are visible while wearing the College uniform are not permitted.

Make-up and Nails Guidelines
Make-up and nail varnish is not part of the College uniform, and it is not to be worn at any time with school uniform or sports uniform.

Exemptions to uniform or grooming based on a student’s cultural or religious identity may be approved by application to the Head of Secondary School or College Chaplain.

Consistent uniform or grooming breaches will be communicated to the deans, who will work with the student and the family.

A final decision on what constitutes good grooming will be made by the Head of Middle School in consultation with the Head of Secondary School and the year level deans.
