Uniform and equipment
We are extremely proud of our school and students. Our young people are a credit to their families and they represent St Cuthbert's and the local community exceptionally well. This is partly due to the fact that a large majority of students not only wear the correct uniform, but wear their uniform correctly and with pride.
All students should:
- Dress neatly and take pride in their appearance
- Wear the correct school uniform that is clean and smart
- Wear full school uniform when travelling to and from school
- Provide a note of explanation from parents/carers if the correct school uniform is not worn to school
- Hair to be worn in a reasonable style and of a natural colour (no extreme hair styles are allowed, no lines, shapes, patterns or writing should be cut into the student’s hair).
- Acceptable jewellery - one pair of ear studs worn in the ears and a wrist watch.
- Make up is not permitted (including nail varnish).
- Blazers to be worn at all times
- No outdoor coats to be worn in the building - All outdoor coats should be black in colour
- No hoods to be worn on the school premises
- All students to wear black polishable school shoes - see image below and full guidance here are in the download section below

All students should arrive at school ready to learn. With this in mind, your child should have the following equipment with them every day:
- Bag – compulsory even on non-PE days.
- Black pen
- Red pen
- Glue stick
- CASIO fx-83GT Plus Scientific Calculator
We advise that stationery equipment is kept in a pencil case. If your child would like to bring any other equipment e.g. colouring pencils, pens, highlighters etc, they are free to do so. Your child should also carry a reading book with them at all times.
If students do not have a pencil case with stated equipment, they will be expected to purchase a pre-packed pencil case from the school office (currently priced at £1.50) with the following contents: Pencil case, black pen x 2, red pen, pencil, ruler, eraser, sharpener, highlighter, gluestick and protractor.
Students should also purchase/keep in their pencil case a Casio Scientific Calculator which is also available to buy from the school office.
