As you will see if you visit the school, our students wear the Manor High uniform with pride. We believe strongly in the importance of uniform in schools. It supports greater safety through quick recognition both inside and outside school, it creates a sense of identity and a sense of togetherness. Uniform relieves pressure on students from having to grow up too soon or to be pressured into wearing expensive or fashionable items of clothing. It keeps the focus on learning and this is supportive as well as a useful reminder of the core purpose of school.
Parents who have financial difficulty in providing uniform are supported by the school and we have the support of all parents in maintaining high standards of dress at all times.
We don’t tolerate deviation from the uniform, nor excessive jewellery and make up.
