College Uniform

Students are not required to wear blazers from Monday 25 June until the end of the summer term.  Normal uniform will resume when students return to college after the summer break on Tuesday 4 September 2018.


Please note that the deadline for ordering uniform for students joining us in September is Friday 22 June.  We cannot guarantee that any items ordered after this date will be received in time for the new academic year.

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.
