  • Brown blazer (compulsory for Year 7-9)
  • Brown blazer with gold trim (compulsory for Year 10 and 11)

Parents agree on acceptance of a place, that their daughters keep to the regulation uniform. In the case of persistent refusal to wear the correct uniform, Heads of Year may send them home to change, having first contacted the parents and notified them that they are doing so.

General Appearance
Please remember that Uniform regulations apply at all times when the uniform is worn, in school as well as going to and from school. Remember as St Angela’s students we want to be positive role models for others and that we represent ourselves, the school and our families at all times.

Uniform Policy
Any student who is in deliberate and continuous breach of any of the above runs the risk of being excluded from class or from school until such time as the issue is rectified. The argument that any such breach is supported by a parent is not acceptable. In emergencies a Head of Year may provide temporary exemption from one or more of the above but only after a written request from a parent.

Items which are not part of school uniform such as jewellery, coloured scarves, patterned headscarves and hoodies will be confiscated and returned at the end of the half term in which they have been confiscated.

Following rules of uniform is a criteria for getting into most Sixth Form colleges.
