Uniform & Equipment
All children wear school uniform with the exception of our Sixth Form students who wear smart business wear. Schoolblazer is the supplier of our school uniform and it can be ordered online with an intelligent sizing service (www.schoolblazer.com).
Our school uniform plays an important part in communicating our school ethos. It gives pupils a sense of belonging, teaches a pride in appearance and understanding of discipline, and it helps build a strong, cohesive school identity which supports high standards and expectations in all areas of school life.
In July 2020 we launched our new Embley uniform which pupils can wear from September 2020. Please click on the links below for further information about our uniform, dress codes and guidance about the equipment and stationery pupils should bring with them to school each day.

There will be a period of transition from September 2020 to July 2021 when both old and new uniforms can be worn before the new uniform becomes compulsory from September 2021.
Our old (HCS) uniform has been discontinued but, for reference, the uniform guidelines and dress codes for this are available by clicking here.
