Parents and Carers

Uniform

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.

Socks : Black

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 in the Guidance Office.  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 lessons.  Should healing take longer than six weeks, please be aware we will insist on studs being removed whilst in school.

Hair Styles

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, not too short or shaved, without ‘tram lines’ or patterns 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.

Footwear

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, lack of distinct heel and raised Achilles tendon guard. 

PE Uniform

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.

Year 8 can wear current PE kit and replace with new kit as needed. 

New PE kit for September - for all year 7’s and new students.  Other year groups will be ‘wearing out’ their kit and replacing with new kit.

  • Navy blue Hobart logo polo or fitted shirt
  • Navy blue Hobart logo shorts or skorts
  • Long navy blue socks and white sports socks
  • Optional Navy blue Hobart logo sports ¼ zip track top for colder weather/outdoor

Lace up SPORTS trainers – proper sports shoes not fashion shoes.

Students can have Astro trainers for the all weather pitch but these are not to be worn in the sports hall.

Football boots for boys - Wait until new term to buy football boots - when needed as PE topics are taught on a rotation and we do not want a student to grow out of uniform before it is worn.

Gum shield for hockey is essential

Other essential PE kit – one piece swimming costume or swimming trunks (black or blue), goggles, swimming hat.

The school uniform should be worn by all students in Year 7 through to Year 11.  Students who come in repeatedly without the correct school uniform on may be sent home to change.
