We are very proud of our uniform with its smart blazer and tie. We aim to maintain high standards at Hobart and will regularly check that students are adhering to our policy. Please make sure you know what is expected and please call before you buy if in any doubt.
Black blazer with school logo: for all students (available from our suppliers), sleeves should not be rolled up.
Shirt: Plain white with conventional collar and with buttons to the neck so that a tie can be worn (no tee shirts, no polo/polo necked shirts). The shirt must be tucked into the waistband of trousers/skirt so girls should not wear a fitted blouse style.
Tie: School design to be worn.
Jumper: A black v neck knitted jumper is optional (no logo).
Skirt: School skirt of the correct size and length with Hobart logo. (Available from our suppliers)
Trousers: Tailored ankle length school trousers in black woven fabric, traditional straight leg style - no jeans, jean style, cords or flares. No decorative stitching, studs, zips etc. no fashion trousers e.g. tight/slim fitting, skinny leg, leggings, jeggings, chinos, harem pants. Trousers should be loose enough to maintain a crease along their entire length and should not be rolled up.
Tights: Plain black or flesh coloured.
Year 11 – may wear sensible matching socks of a different colour with trousers.
Make-up: No make-up will be allowed on students in Years 7 - 10. Students will be asked to remove any make-up. Discrete make-up for Year 11 only.
Coloured nail varnish or artificial gel, acrylic or false nails are not permitted.
Jewellery: On health and safety grounds we do not allow students to wear jewellery except a pair of small ear studs, a plain ring and a wrist watch. Please note that we do not allow any facial or other body part piercings. Jewellery must be removed for PE and the PE department will provide a safe place to leave items. If your child is going to have a piercing, we would insist you arrange it at the start of the summer holidays to avoid disruption to PE lessons while the studs cannot be removed during the healing process. Should this take longer than six weeks, please be aware we will insist on studs being removed whilst in school.
Students are expected to keep within the appearance standards that we expect at Hobart. Hair should be neat, tidy and not exaggerated. Hair should be of a natural colour, without ‘tram lines’ or patterns cut or shaved in and not over spiked or the so called Mohican style. Hairstyles must be appropriate for school and not infringe health and safety regulations. Long hair must be tied back for practical lessons such as Technology or Science.
Hobart wants all students to be safe at school. We believe that it can be dangerous for students to wear shoes that have platform soles or high heels, so we do not allow students to wear such shoes in the school.
Shoes must be black, sensible, and suitable to wear in labs and workshops. Black trainers, trainer style shoes or “Vans” style pumps are not school uniform. Distinguishing features of training shoes are logos, multiple lacing holes, lack of distinct heel and raised Achilles tendon guard.
We have a broad PE curriculum so students will experience a wide range of activities. Therefore correct kit is very important. It is the same for boys and girls and can also be purchased from Screens embroidery and printing: www.screensschoolwear.co.uk 01502 581010 Rant Score, Lowestoft NR32 1TY
White polo shirt – collared – no logo
Royal blue shorts – no logo
In addition students will need the following items:
Lace up sport trainers – proper sport shoes, not fashion shoes.
Students may have Astro trainers for the all-weather pitch but these are not to be worn in the sports Hall.
Football boots for boys – Please wait until September when we issue the programmes of study before buying football boots as the football units will happen at different times through the year. We do not want students to outgrow equipment before it is used.
Shin pads must be worn for football and hockey and a gum shield is essential for hockey.
Other essential kit – swimming costume / trunks (not loose swimming shorts) – black or navy, goggles, swimming hat, towel.
