Please note the following:

  • Parents are required to ensure that their son’s dress conforms with the College requirements. Please pay particular attention to the colours specified.
  • The Year Head will judge what is the acceptable standard of dress and personal appearance for all occasions. Students may be refused access to class if their uniform does not comply with regulations.
  • The College insists that its students look smart so the top shirt button must be closed at all times and the tie must cover the top button and shirts must be tucked in.
  • Tracksuit tops or “hoodies” are not allowed to be worn at any time. The College tracksuit top may be worn with the PE uniform.
  • Students must wear the College winter jacket when going to and from the College premises as they are always ambassadors for the college.  ‘Hoodies’ are not permitted to be worn in the College building or on the journey to or from the College, and may be confiscated if a student is found wearing one.
  • During term time the College blazer is optional, however, it must be worn when the students represent the College on formal occasions (such as prize-givings or concerts), on away matches and for major liturgical ceremonies in the College such as the Family Mass.
  • Efforts are made to keep the cost of the uniform reasonable and there is an annual sale in June at the College of clean, second-hand uniform clothes.  The proceeds of this sale go to the SVP and the College’s sister college in Ambo, Ethiopia.
  • The Lost-and-Found department is often full of unclaimed items of clothing many of which are quite expensive to buy.  Parents can help by putting their son’s name on each piece of clothing.  When an item of clothing with a name is found the owner will be informed and the item can be claimed at reception.
