All pupils are encouraged to strive for the highest standards of appearance, orderliness, and co-operation. The school’s principles and rules reflect this, and school uniform continues to be an important feature within our principles and identity.
One characteristic of a successful school is an identifiable ethos and sense of belonging: school uniform is one factor in reinforcing this, and assists in creating self-belief and pride, particularly when a school has an image and history to be proud of.
Christ College is responsive to parental concerns about the cost of school uniform and to pupils’ wishes for clothing that reflects modern trends. The changing effects and demands of fashion do filter into what children wear to school and always will, not least in the area of sports kit, where change is rapid and almost irresistible.
