School Uniform

Boys are expected to wear school uniform correctly to and from school, as well as in school. Any student not in correct uniform must bring a note from his parent to explain why.


The Richard Hale uniform consists of:

  • A navy blue blazer with a school badge (NB a different badge is worn in Y11)
  • White shirt and school tie, with correct house colour stripe
  • Black trousers
  • Grey or dark blue v-necked pullover (the tie must be clearly visible)
  • Black shoes, formal in style and capable of being polished, ie no logos and not black leather trainers. The school’s decision on suitability is final.

Please note the rules about footwear, hair, jewellery and certain items of clothing in the extract from the School Rules printed in our parents’ handbook.

Most of the uniform can be bought at various outlets. The school tie and badges, however, are available only through Stevensons.

The Parents’ Association is able to supply a wide range of good-quality used uniform and games kit at very reasonable prices. To purchase used uniform, there are sales at various times throughout the year or, if urgent please email to arrange a convenient time to view the uniform.

Please ensure that all uniform and personal property (including bags) is clearly named.
