Boys Uniform

BOYS’ UNIFORM

1.       A single-breasted regulation RSD blazer (to be worn throughout the year).

2.       An RSD tie.  Only JuniorSchool ties are available in the shops.  The SeniorSchool tie is available from the Bursar’s office.

3.       A white shirt, buttoning at the neck

4.       Mid-grey worsted regulation trousers.  (Light grey, charcoal or black are not acceptable).  Exaggerated styles are not permitted.  No turn-ups or pleats.  Belts (if worn) should be plain black or dark brown with plain buckles.

5.       Plain black shoes.  Shoes with very heavy soles or high heels and other exaggerated styles are not permitted, as are parti-coloured footwear and laces.  Boots are not acceptable i.e. anything above ankle height.

6.       Socks should be plain and dark in colour (grey, black, navy).

7.       If pullovers are worn, they should be of the RSD regulation type in plain mid-grey, finely-knit with a v-neck.  The V neck ribbing is not broader than 1 cm. (approx.).  Currently “BALMORAL” is the only acceptable make.

8.       Navy blue, brown, black or grey coats and duffel coats and any other approved outer wear are acceptable.  Coats with hoods which are lined or tipped with fur or brightly coloured material are not acceptable nor are tweed coats.  In Summer Term, boys may carry light-weight, foldable, showerproof coats provided always that they cover the school blazer completely.

9.       Outdoor uniform may include an RSD scarf (or a SeniorSchool college-type scarf, available only from school).  Baseball caps and ‘beanies’ are not permitted.

10.     Boys are not permitted to wear jewellery with school uniform.  This includes studs or sleepers in pierced ears and wristbands.  Jewellery worn in school may be confiscated.  In the Sixth Form a single ring on each hand may be worn provided it is not considered to be potentially dangerous to the wearer or others.  Tattoos are not permitted to be visible at any time.

11.     Books should be carried in a schoolbag or briefcase which gives good protection against wear and tear.  Sports bags (especially in vinyl) should only be used for sports gear and are not considered suitable.

12.     Hair should be worn in a reasonable manner.  Excessive hairstyles (eg unnatural colours, tightly shaven sides, mohican) are not permitted.  Hair gel should not be used for “spiking” styles.  Hair dye or tints, if used, must not alter the normal appearance excessively and colouring should only be single, natural and neutral tones.  Boys’ hair which covers the collar, or which falls over their eyes or face is regarded as being too long for school.  Boys are also required to be cleanly shaven.

THE REGULATIONS ABOUT UNIFORM WILL BE ENFORCED AND PUPILS WHO INFRINGE THEM MAY BE SENT HOME.

Those who are in any doubt about the interpretation of the regulations should consult their Form Tutor before buying new clothes or footwear for school.  Parents are advised to contact the school if they have any further queries.

Boys seeking temporary permission to wear to school some article of clothing that does not conform with the regulations should bring a note from home to their Form Tutor.

Boys must wear school uniform when they are within the School precincts, when they go to practices or matches, or when they travel elsewhere to represent the School.  On Saturdays however, those who come to School fixtures as spectators will be allowed to dispense with uniform, provided that they come suitably dressed.
