School Uniform Policy

The Matravers School Uniform (for Key Stage 3 and 4)

We believe our uniform should demonstrate an outward reflection of the pride students feel in Matravers School. This uniform should be something that reflects their identity as part of Matravers School and also demonstrates that they are associated with high expectations.

All students are expected to wear correct school uniform at all times.

The school is the final arbiter of what is and is not appropriate uniform. If a parent is in any doubt they should contact the school for clarification.
