Parents/guardians and students are respectfully reminded that if you choose to come to Bishop Vaughan it is important you follow the requirements in respect of school dress and appearance. High standards in these areas support the school’s high reputation. Students failing to meet this expectation without good reason will face sanctions, as would be the case for any other refusal to comply with school rules and expectations.   


Families facing financial challenges are always provided with support. Details of the support available for purchasing uniform can be obtained from the Local Authority: 


In addition, the school keeps a stock of spare items of uniform and provides these where appropriate. 


Families are kindly asked to consider donating unwanted items of uniform to the school's uniform swap shop. These can be brought in to the school's Main Office at any time. Families wishing to access this are welcome to do so throughout the school year and should be in touch with the Main Office in the first instance to arrange to come in and to check that the items/ sizes are available. In addition, the school updates parents and carers of opportunities to come in and browse through all available stock at regular intervals throughout the year. 


Please could parents/or guardians of students note that felt/fabric shoes, even if black in colour, are not considered suitable footwear for school. Please adhere to the footwear requirements as stipulated in the uniform dress code. 


We have one style of uniform for Years 7 to 11 and a separate uniform for Sixth Form students. A full copy of the school uniform requirements can be found here.  

The school uniform policy has due regard to the Welsh Government guidance in terms of: 


  • ensuring that due regard is given to securing equality of treatment between pupils of different sexes and genders; pupils from different ethnic and religious backgrounds and; disabled pupils in relation to school uniform and appearance policies 

  • cost and affordability 

  • practical considerations involved in introducing or changing school uniform and appearance policies 

and it has been implemented following consultation with parents, pupils and the school community. 


The school is most grateful to the parent, carer and pupil for their support in upholding this aspect of the school's rules and expectations. 

The school uniform can be purchased from a number of different suppliers.
