We expect our students to wear their college uniform with pride. It was designed by the College Council and represents our students’ commitment to their college, as well as preparing students for the expectations of the world of work. School uniform indicates a commitment to the shared ideals of the college and promotes equality in a very visible and easily understood way. The Spires College takes uniform very seriously and we expect the support of parents/carers in ensuring high standards of uniform in the college.
Full details of the college’s uniform expectations are included in the uniform booklet below. Please ensure you are familiar with this before purchasing any items.
Some items can only be purchased from the college uniform shop. These are blazers, skirts, ties, PE polo shirts, PE shorts, PE fleeces, PE track pants, rugby shirts and PE socks.
