Parents and Carers
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 pupils 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 Screens). Sleeves should not be rolled up.
Shirt Long or short sleeved 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/shorts so should not be a fitted blouse style.
Tie School design to be worn.
Jumper A black plain V-neck knitted jumper is optional (no logo).
Skirt School skirt – black woven fabric of the correct style and length. No lycra or stretch fabric. Available from Screens –style Henley, Charleston or Pencil skirt. A letter was sent to parents/carers in July 2023 regarding skirts. Please see the link below:
Shorts Tailored woven black fabric shorts (which will maintain a crease along the entire length). They may be worn as an alternative to trousers. Short ankle length black school socks and black school shoes to be worn with shorts. Shorts are permitted between the start of June half term, until the end of the October half term. Available from Screens or our other recommended suppliers.
Tights Plain black or flesh coloured.
Year 11 – may wear sensible matching socks of a different colour with trousers.
Hobart wants all children to be safe at school. We believe that it can be dangerous for children to wear shoes that have platform soles or high heels, so we do not allow children 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, and lack of distinct heel and raised Achilles tendon guard.

No make-up will be allowed on pupils in Years 7 - 10. Pupils will be asked to remove any make-up in the Guidance Office. Discrete make-up for Year 11 only.
Coloured nail varnish, artificial gel, acrylic or false nails are not permitted.
On health and safety grounds, we do not allow pupils to wear jewellery except a pair of small ear studs (one per ear), a plain ring and a wristwatch. 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 were going to have a piercing, we would insist you arrange it at the start of the summer holidays to avoid disruption to PE lessons and keeping to uniform expectations.
Should healing take longer than six weeks, please be aware we will insist on studs being removed whilst in school.
Pupils 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, not too short or shaved, without ‘tram lines’ or patterns and not over spiked. 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.
We have a broad PE curriculum so students will experience a wide range of activities. Therefore, correct kit is very important. It can be purchased from Screens embroidery and printing – www.screensschoolwear.co.uk, 01502 581010, Rant Score Lowestoft NR32 1TY.
