Avon Valley College has a practical uniform which all students in years 7 to 11 are expected to wear at all times. A high standard of personal appearance is expected of all students. Uniform helps to promote a sense of belonging within the College and public image outside. A smart appearance is essential in most workplaces. We aim to prepare our students for the world of work. All clothing should be marked for identification.

Jewellery must not be worn. Nail varnish is not allowed. Studs or sleepers are allowed only in pierced ears – one pair only. Nose studs and other body piercings are not allowed. Hairstyles and make up should not be extreme, i.e. only a style and colour that would be acceptable in the workplace. Additional fashion accessories are not permitted.

Uniform is by definition uniform. Current styles, fashions and trends will not determine or change uniform policy. Please check with the relevant Pastoral Co‐ordinator before allowing your child to have an unconventional hairstyle or body piercing, or purchasing clothing that may not be deemed suitable. The College reserves the right to specify what is or is not acceptable.
