School Uniform

Rutlish students

All students in Year 7 to 11 are expected to wear full school uniform at all times. It is designed to be smart, comfortable and practical. Having a school uniform instils a sense of pride, avoids competitive dressing and helps to set the tone of the school. Uniform is a key aspect of creating a purposeful learning environment to allow students to work and realise their full potential.

When purchasing new shoes and other items please ensure that they conform to school policy. Tutors and Heads of Year will always be willing to advise you if you are unsure of any item of school clothing.

All of our uniform is widely available, except the badge, tie, and PE kit which should be bought from the school.

The uniform below is available to purchase from the school. Orders and payment are made through the Rutlish App. Subject to availability, uniform can be collected from the Manor House on Wednesday lunchtimes. For details on how to access the Rutlish App:
