Catmose College Uniform | Catmose College


Our uniform policy is agreed with parents and the Student Council. As a College we believe that uniform promotes a sense of pride and belonging.

All students are to wear uniform. Uniform is not a fashion item. It is designed to be both formal and comfortable. If there are any problems please contact the College.

The overall impression should be that of a well-groomed individual who takes pride in their appearance.

In the case of severe weather, the Principal has discretion to relax the uniform policy. This will be communicated to students as they arrive at the College. Students should assume that, unless directed otherwise, they should wear their usual uniform each day.

Catmose College uniform is stocked locally by:

Kids and More, 5 Crown Walk, Oakham, LE15 6BZ

If a student is not conforming to the uniform policy he or she will be:

  • required to remove the offending item if possible;
  • he/she will be given a verbal warning and a date to correct it by;
  • a letter and/or phone call home will be made;
  • he/she will be required to work in isolation or sent home to address the issue.

Please note these are not sequential; any may be applied depending on the circumstances.


Hair should be well-groomed and hair styles should be conventional and of a natural colour. A cut shorter than a grade 3 is unlikely to be acceptable.


Hats are allowed only in extreme weather conditions – teachers will give permission to students to wear them.


Jewellery should be discreet and safe, no large earrings – just one stud pair. No spacers, bar or dangling earrings. A single ring and bracelet is permissible.



Make up should be very subtle – no coloured nail varnish.


A nose stud is permitted if it is discreet. No other visible piercings are permitted. They will have to be removed.
