Expectations are very high at Devizes School and this is reflected in our students’ appearance, behaviour and attitudes. Our uniform is a vital part of the school identity. We expect every student to be dressed correctly at all times according to the list below.
Blazers to be worn to school and around school. Staff will allow students to take blazers off in lessons.
Jumpers are available but not compulsory. If worn they should be black with the school logo. They must be worn under the blazer at all times and are not to be worn instead of a blazer. Please note that no jumpers are to be worn in Term 6.
Ties should cover the top button and worn at a reasonable length.
A formal, plain white shirt / blouse, short or long sleeved. Ties must be able to be worn with them.
Girls may wear a skirt or trousers.
Skirts should be worn on the knee. There is a compulsory black school skirt - style Charleston, available from Scholars in Devizes.
Boys’ and girls’ trousers should be black and tailored. No hipsters or low rise. Jeans, combat trousers and shorts are not permitted. No leggings. Belts must be plain black and fit through the loops on the trousers.
Shoes should be plain, black and low- heeled. No trainers, sling backs, ballet-style pumps, canvas style daps or boots of any nature. The same footwear must not be worn around school and for PE.
Socks - Girls: Plain black or navy tights or socks, white ankle socks in the summer. Boys: Plain black or navy socks – not the same ones to be worn around school and in PE.
Outdoor coats: A plain jacket or coat is required. Denim, camouflage, leather or imitation leather jackets are not permitted. Scarves can only be worn with a coat. Hoodies or other sweatshirts, and cardigans, are not acceptable.
Hats and baseball caps are not to be worn.
Jewellery: Students who have their ears pierced may wear one small plain stud or sleeper in each ear. No rings or studs are permitted in any other part of the body which may have been pierced. No stretchers of any kind. Any excessive jewellery i.e. bracelets will be confiscated by a teacher and dealt with according to the ‘Confiscation of Property’ policy.
If a student has an item of jewellery that they value it should not be bought into school as it will not be covered by our insurance.
Tattoos: Tattoos of any kind are not allowed at school; this includes temporary 'henna' tattoos.
Nail varnish and excessive makeup are unsuitable for school and are not permitted.
Hair should be a natural and uniform colour and not worn in a style which has the effect of drawing attention to the student. Simple hair accessories in school colours only.
Headscarves worn for religious or medical reasons should be plain black.
All items are obtainable from Scholars, 2 Little Brittox, Devizes. Tel 01380 722642.
