School Uniform

The aims of our policy are to enable learners to identify with their school and to dress appropriately for a focused learning environment. The wearing of correct school uniform is considered to be of a high priority and a compulsory element of attending Connah’s Quay High School.

In general, we are extremely proud of the standard of uniform worn by our learners. However, learners arriving at school in inappropriate uniform will be sent home to get changed.

The school uniform has been the product of a widespread consultation and been approved by the governors. The school uniform is reviewed annually. Ultimately, all decisions relating to our uniform policy are decided by the school, so if you have any uncertainty in interpreting the policy please contact school before purchasing the item.
