Uniform Guidance | Rainhill High School

Uniform Guidance

Rainhill High School have a clear code of uniform with an online shop accessed via our school website where you can purchase items of uniform to be delivered.

School Uniform

We have spoken to our uniform supplier Price & Buckland, who have provided guidance for sizing your child at https://price-buckland.co.uk/parent-zone/how-to-measure-your-child/.

You are able to order your child’s school blazer, jumper, PE kit and socks direct from their website. We would advise that you choose the option to have items delivered to your home address and not to the school.

What happens if a pupil does not have the correct uniform?

Stage 1 A school version will be offered to borrow for the day and a letter sent home to parents.

Stage 2 Parents will be contacted and arrangements made to bring the correct uniform into school.

Stage 3 He/she will be given a detention or spend time in Internal Exclusion until correct uniform is worn.

If you need support and are eligible for free school meals, please contact the school as support is available.

Over the very recent past, post-lockdown, girls’ skirts have increasingly been worn above the knee. In some cases, this has been taken to the excess. Please ensure that the skirts are box pleat and knee length.

PE Kit Expectations**
The PE kit is part of your child’s school uniform and the correct kit needs to be worn. We fully suggest that your son/daughter brings their fleece to every lesson as this will be the only outer layer they are permitted to. Along with their t-shirt, shorts and socks girls can wear ALL BLACK leggings that can be purchased from school and boys can bring ALL BLACK tracksuit bottoms (in the event of very cold weather). A black base layer can be worn under T shirts and shorts again, in the event of cold weather.


Key stage 3 dancers- expected to wear school uniform and remove ties, shoes, socks and blazers.

Key stage 4 dancers- expected to wear PE kit and bare feet, or leggings and a t-shirt. No cropped tops.
