Preparatory School Uniform

Years 1–8

This photo showcases some of 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 at all times. The College uniform is worn at school and when travelling to and from the College.

Students are required to:

  • wear their uniform with pride;
  • wear a blazer in the street and wear their shirt/blouse tucked in with the top button and their tie done up;
  • students are expected to wear clean and polished black leather regulation shoes;
  • wear shorts/trousers/skirts/culottes which fit appropriately and are not too long or too short;
  • change back into full uniform after having Physical Education during the day – the only exception being Physical Education classes held in Period 6, then students may depart in full College tracksuit; 
  • wear approved dress at Physical Education and sports practices;
  • only wear College hoodies and sweatshirts under tracksuit jackets and when outside (Terms 2 and 3 only).

The wearing of patterned or coloured T-shirts or polypropylene under school shirts is not permitted, nor is the wearing of coloured socks.

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

A final decision on what constitutes good grooming will be made by the Deputy Principal in consultation with the Principal of Preparatory School.
