Uniform

Uniform and achievement are a high priority at Avanti Fields School; we believe the way in which students wear their school uniform reflects the importance which is placed on attention to detail and pride in the school.

Set out below is a summary of the Avanti Fields School uniform specification. The school’s approved uniform suppliers are Brigade Clothing.

Ties
All students will be expected to wear a tie. These should be worn with a traditional knot, large knots or short ties are not acceptable.

Shirts
A white school shirt must be worn with a top button which fastens at the neck. The shirt should be long enough to be tucked in and the top button must be fastened at all times. Blouse style shirts with rounded collars are not allowed.

Skirts
Girls may wear a grey skirt, which has two inverted kick pleats and no splits. It is important to ensure that the skirt is knee-length and not made of stretchy material. Students will be asked to replace skirts which no longer comply with the length requirements.

Trousers
Trousers must be grey (not black or charcoal) and of a classic wider style: straight, with no visible zips, studs or buckles and which do not fit closely on any part of the leg.

Blazers and Jumpers
Blazers and jumpers must have the school’s logo and can only be bought from the approved school outfitters. Logos are not sold separately. Blazers are a compulsory part of the school uniform.

Jumpers
Only V neck jumpers with the AHS logo are allowed. As an alternative, a white top may be worn under the shirt – no visibly coloured clothing should show through. Jumpers will not be permitted to be worn without a  blazer.

Shoes
Shoes should be of plain black leather or leather-type, with plain black soles and black laces. Black suede, fabric or canvas type shoes, boots or trainer type shoes are not permitted. Shoes need to be comfortable enough to walk to school in and suitable to wear in wet weather. In winter, students may walk to school in boots, but these should be changed upon arrival at school.

Socks and Tights
Socks should be plain black; tights should be plain black.

Jewellery
Only religious bracelets and/or necklaces will be allowed and with the exception of a pair of earrings no other jewellery will be permitted. Religious necklaces should be worn inside the shirt for safety reasons.

Make-up
Make-up, including tinted moisturiser or concealer, is not allowed.

False Nails
Excessively long nails are not suitable for school as they have been known to cause injuries to the student, if they become caught or bent backwards during sporting activities. Only natural looking non-coloured false nails are permitted.

Hair
Extreme hairstyles are not allowed. Unnatural hair colours are not permitted. Borders and patterns, including a shaved parting, must not be shaved into the hair or eyebrows.

Hoodies
Hoodies are not allowed to be worn in, or on the way to school and will be confiscated.
