School Uniform

Our Primary Campus sweatshirts and cardigans are now available to order through our ParentMail app. (Please follow the link for guidance on purchasing through ParentMail https://www.parentmail.co.uk/help/parenthelp/payments/)

We will contact you during the Summer holidays to confirm the arrangements for the collection of orders.

The policy on Primary Campus uniform is detailed below:

  • Sweatshirts or cardigans with the school logo (Maroon for Sixbells, Red for Tillery Street, Jade Green for Roseheyworth Road)

  • White shirts or polo shirts with no logo

  • Dark grey trousers, skirts or pinafores

  • Black shoes

Book bags, PE bags and baseball caps are also available to order if parents/carers wish to do so.

All learners in Y7-Y11 are to wear our uniform with pride. It is our policy that all learners wear school uniform when attending school or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours. This policy is based on the principles that our school uniform:

  • Promotes a sense of pride in the school

  • Engenders a feeling of community and belonging

  • Is practical and smart

  • Identifies learners as being a member of our school community

  • Is not distracting in class

  • Makes learners feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance

The Abertillery Learning Community uniform for learners in Y7-Y11 is:

  • *School tie

  • *Black school blazer incorporating the school logo

  •  Plain white shirt/blouse worn under the blazer

  •  Black tailored (not tight) trousers (not jeans, leggings, combat, cropped, or skinny)

  •  Black skirt (knee length or just above the knee)

  •  Completely plain black shoes – girls’ shoes should have a low heel

  •  Plain black socks

  •  A sensible coat

There may be temporary modifications to the uniform during extreme weather conditions (hot or cold) but these will be at the discretion of the Headteacher.

For P.E. lessons, Abertillery Secondary Campus learners must wear:

  • *Abertillery Learning Community P.E. top 

  • Shorts

  • P.E. socks 

  • Leggings

  • Swimming costume

*These items can only be purchased through the ParentMail app.

We only allow learners to wear safe and sensible jewellery. This is limited to one pair of small stud earrings and a watch. The exceptions to the rule are small objects of religious significance. Facial and body piercings of any kind (including spikes) are not allowed as they may place the learner at risk of serious injury. Extreme hairstyles are also not permitted.

Any headwear worn for religious reasons should be of a plain black material.

Hats, coats, winter gloves and scarves must not be worn inside the school building.
