School Uniform

We are proud of our school and expect all students to wear the Honley uniform as it:

  • Instills pride in our identity
  • Supports positive behaviour, good discipline and etiquette
  • Encourages identity with, and support for, our school values
  • Ensures students from all cultures and backgrounds feel welcome
  • Protects children from social pressures to dress in a particular way
  • Nurtures cohesion and promotes good relations between different groups of students
  • Supports effective learning, teaching and safeguarding

Honley High School Uniform

Following a request from students, to change our school uniform, we have consulted with students, parents and staff and the final decision has been made by the governing body and the school uniform will change with affect from September 2018.  This was the wish of the majority of our school community and was overwhelmingly voted for by the students in school. 

The new school uniform will see Honley return to our traditional school colour of bottle green and will consist of a green blazer, grey trousers/grey skirt, white shirt and a tie.  Students will also be allowed to wear a grey v-neck jumper/cardigan (no logo) should they wish to do so.  Each year group will have their own coloured clip on tie which they will keep throughout their five years at Honley.  Please note our PE kit will not be changing.

Being mindful of the cost of purchasing the new uniform and also the wishes of our current Year 10s the decision has been made to retain the existing uniform for this year group for the next academic year.

To ensure that sufficient stocks are retained, we will be in discussions with our uniform suppliers (Bridge School Wear, Natasha’s and Term Time Wear).

 Jewellery & Hair

Jewellery often presents school with health and safety issues. We expect all jewellery to be removable as this will be necessary in lessons where there is a particular health and safety issue. Plastic replacement/filler jewellery is not permitted. All permitted jewellery must be plain and discreet.

Students can wear:

·                One ear stud (in each ear) in the lobe only. This must be a small plain stud; no bar or looped earrings. The stud can be any colour as long as it is plain

·                One finger ring per hand

·                As with jewellery, all make up and hair accessories should be plain and discreet. Hair can only be dyed using natural hair colours.
