School Uniform

At Atherton High School we have the very highest standards regarding uniform and take pride in the school and in appearance.

School uniform plays a key role in promoting pride, self-confidence, and a feeling of belonging within the student body. These factors contribute to students’ wellbeing, removing the additional pressures of deciding what to wear and added stress of meeting the expectations of their peers.


The compulsory school uniform consists of the following items:

Physical Education Kit (
Aptus Performance)

Polo shirt with Atherton High School logo, black shorts with the Atherton High School logo, black socks, trainers and football boots.

Optional: Black tracksuit bottoms, leggings and tracksuit top be worn by pupils during cold weather.

We do not permit pupils to wear coats, jackets or hoodies inside the school building. Pupils may carry these items, or store them in their bags for the duration of the day. When they are outside at break or lunchtime, they can wear these items.

Hair – Hair must be a neat style. It must be no shorter than a number 2, with no shaved patterns or unnatural colours (including bright shades of red/brown).

Please note: All students should travel to and from school in their full uniform, worn correctly
