School Clothing Guidance

Pupils attending Talbot House will be involved in a range of activities, both indoors and outdoors including in the community and sporting venues.  They should come to school in clothing that allows them to be able to participate fully in all planned activities. Including suitable coats to stay warm and dry when out on enrichment.  This includes suitable footwear and warm clothing for the autumn and winter months and protective clothing from the sun in the spring and summer months.  Here we have highlighted what types of clothing is acceptable in school as well as items of clothing that is not allowed.


If you have any queries, please contact our administration team.

  • Shorts for boys and girls must be knee-length and be worn above the hips. The expectation is they are worn during the summer months.

  • Spaghetti straps, strapless tops, muscle shirts, off-shoulder shirts, and tank tops are not allowed.

  • Leggings must not be see-through.

  • All parts of stomach and back must be fully covered.

  • Necklines must be modest. No tops that can expose cleavage or too much of the chest.

  • We do not allow flip flops, sliders, platform shoes, or shoes with wheels for safety reasons.

  • Hats may be worn but MUST be removed during meal times.

  • A school sweatshirt or polo shirt can be provided for those who would like one.


Unfortunately, for any pupils who arrive wearing any of the above unallowed items of clothing as displayed above, we will contact parents or carers and ask that they either collect their child or bring suitable clothing in for them to change into.
