Uniform

At Uplands we believe that a school uniform gives a sense of belonging and pride in the school whilst also ensuring equality amongst students. In addition, a smart appearance contributes positively to the students' attitude to work and study; it also significantly influences how the school is perceived by the general public.

The uniform suppliers for the college are Sussex Uniforms of Haywards Heath. In addition to their easy to use and efficient on-line ordering facility, they have a retail outlet in Haywards Heath (for details please visit their website www.sussexuniforms.co.uk).

We would like parental support in ensuring that all students come to school correctly dressed.  If your son or daughter is asking to wear something that is not listed as allowed, please remind them of the College expectations. 

If a student is incorrectly dressed we will endeavour to lend him or her uniform.  Students in the wrong uniform, or with items of uniform, such as a blazer, missing, may have to stay with their tutor until they are wearing correct school uniform.   

If your son or daughter has a medical issue that means they need to wear trainers, then we will need a medical note.  In this instance, trainers should be plain black and without logos.
