School Uniform

At Northgate we take pride in the school uniform our pupils in Years 7 to 11 wear and ask all parents to support us in maintaining high standards.

  • Plain black traditional, straight-legged, full length, school style trousers. Acceptable styles at varying prices are available from either Coes’ Schoolwear Department or PMG Schoolwear.* (No denim, patterned material, excessive flares, tight fitting ‘skinny’ trousers, hipsters, embellished or three-quarter length).
    * Although we do not insist trousers are purchased from these outlets, trousers that are not a plain black traditional school style will not be permitted. We therefore strongly recommend both these outlets to avoid pupils being told their trousers are unacceptable and parents having to buy replacements.
  • Shoes must be plain black school style shoes (with black laces if tie-up style) without decoration, coloured trim or logos. Trainer style shoes are not allowed.
  • All pupils are required to wear the official blue Northgate shirt/blouse.
  • All pupils in Years 7 to 10 are required to own a Northgate embroidered jumper, which cannot be replaced by any other garment worn directly over the shirt.
  • Year 11 pupils require a Northgate sweatshirt, which cannot be replaced by any other garment worn directly over the shirt.
  • White, navy, black or grey socks.
  • A plain black or dark blue head covering may be worn for religious reasons.
  • Accessories such as belts and hair bands should be plain and consistent with the Northgate uniform colours.
  • Pupils may wear a plain white short-sleeved or sleeveless vest underneath their shirt or blouse but this must not be visible at any place other than the neckline.
  • Jewellery should not be worn, apart from watches and a single pair of simple studs for pierced ears (no hoops, dangling designs, large gem or bling!) Any excessive or additional jewellery will be confiscated for the period of one week. Pupils in Middle School may wear one discreet nose stud
    Pupils will be required to remove all piercings and jewellery prior to any physical activity and the school seeks parental support in relaying and emphasising this message to your son or daughter.

The shirts, blouses and jumpers are stocked by PMG Ipswich and can be bought from their Ipswich store or their website. www.pmgschoolwear.co.uk

Inappropriate Uniform

Parents, one costly danger to avoid is allowing your child to persuade you to buy inappropriate trousers or shoes, which you will then need to replace.
