Regulation uniform can be purchased from Barnums School wear in Herne Bay & Tankerton or Termtime Uniforms in Faversham. Both suppliers offer an online service, with uniform being delivered to the school, if required.

Other points to note about uniform include:

• It is expected that school uniform should be worn both to and from school to ensure students arrive prepared for the school day and represent the school in the wider community.

• Clothing should be worn in a manner that is safe and suitable for the work place e.g. trousers of an appropriate length and without slits, no frayed sleeves, no bare midriff

• Girls will be expected to adjust their clothing if it is inappropriate or even to wear a suitable alternative as a temporary measure or in extreme circumstances to return home until appropriate clothing can be found

• Scarves are acceptable but should be removed in the school building

• Belts may be worn but should not be visible

• All items of clothing, including shoes, must be clearly named

• Girls are responsible for their own uniform and coats

• The Sixth Form do not wear a uniform

Polo shirts are NOT an acceptable item of uniform

HAIR - Hair should be worn neatly, without the addition of coloured braids, in a natural colour, and in a manner that is safe and suitable for the work place. Hair must not be in vivid colours.

MAKE-UP - No make-up is preferred but if worn, make-up should be very discreet. Students will be expected to remove excessive make-up. This includes brightly coloured nail polish.

JEWELLERY - No jewellery is preferred. Where jewellery is worn it remains the responsibility of the students at all times and the following regulations should be noted:

• Earrings – must be small unobtrusive, plain colours. No more than two per ear lobe and ears should match. All earrings must be removed for PE. No other form of pierced body jewellery is allowed in school.
