Uniform Guidance

School uniform 2017-18

We are proud of our students at York High School and want them to look smart in their school uniform.  In order to ensure that we have a smooth start in September I would like to take this opportunity to remind parents of some of the rules where we have had problems in the last year.

We are aware that replacing incorrect school uniform is an expensive exercise, so in order to avoid this, these are the key rules which will help you to buy the correct uniform for September.


Trousers and skirts

Black plain knee length skirts, with black opaque tights for girls or trousers must be worn.  Students cannot wear trousers that are leggings, jeggings, chinos, cords, jeans or jean like trousers.  All trousers, whether for girls or boys must have a zip fastening at the front. 

Some of our students have taken to wearing trousers that are too short and do not reach the shoe; these are not permitted.  Students who wear trousers that do not meet the uniform policy will be told to replace them with more suitable ones at the beginning of term.

Some examples of acceptable Girls trousers:


Some examples of acceptable Boys trousers:




School shoes

School shoes/trainers must be all back, canvas shoes or plimsolls must not be worn.


It is essential that all students follow these rules in September and so if you are unsure about our school uniform and expectations please contact your child’s Year Leader before buying new items.
