Uniform and achievement have always been a high priority at Avanti House 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. The smart appearance of our students is regularly commented on by parents of prospective students and visitors to the school.
Set out below is a summary of the Avanti House School uniform specification. The school’s approved uniform suppliers are Brigade Clothing.
All students, including girls, will be expected to wear a tie. These should be worn with a traditional knot, large knots or short ties are not acceptable.
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. If students wish to wear a vest, then these also have to be plain white with no logo and are the same sleeve length as the shirt or shorter.
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 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.
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 independently of the blazer. The only item which should be worn between the blazer and shirt is the school jumper.
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.
