School Uniform

It is expected that all Christ Church School pupils will wear the school uniform since this engenders a greater sense of belonging, which is reflected in a pride for their school. We trust that parents will encourage their children to look smart and help us to maintain high standards of appearance.

Most Christ Church School uniform can be purchased in high street shops and supermarkets, and from Hewitts, 45-51 Church Street, Croydon CR9 1QQ and at HEWITTS. The retailer can be contacted at customercare@hewittsofcroydon.com and on 020 8680 4555/020 8688 1830.

All uniform items should be clearly marked with the child’s name. Lost property is placed in a cupboard and cleared weekly. Unmarked items are disposed of at the end of term.

Hair (natural, not dyed) must be tied back using a hair tie coloured red, white or black. Our school has an inclusive view for all of its pupils and as such we recognise that there are some children who may need to use products which nourish and enrich specific hair types and also help families to manage and maintain their child’s hair. However the school does not permit hair products used purely for cosmetic/aesthetic purposes such as gels or dyes which provide no nourishment to a child’s hair.

If ears are pierced only studs are allowed. No jewellery, including ear studs, is to be worn during PE lessons.
