Uniform is an important aspect of equal opportunities in the Parkside Federation. It also affords some safety and protection for younger students as they can be easily identified as students of the college.
Years 7-10 School uniform is compulsory and students who fail to wear the correct school dress will receive a consequence.
Year 11 may be granted a non-uniform privilege if certain requirements are met regarding work and attendance. However, we ask that students who have gained this privilege wear appropriate dress for the world of work, and we reserve the right to ask for inappropriate dress to be changed to something suitable.
