School Uniform

Jack Hunt is a school which regards uniform as being important. For many of our students the uniform is worn with pride and for many it enhances the feeling of belonging to a community.  

The school uniform has been devised to take account of the need for the various items of uniform to be practical, smart and reasonably economical to buy and care for.  Parents are asked to check with the appropriate Head of House in case of doubt as to the acceptability of certain items of clothing before making a purchase.  

The purpose of the uniform is to help to create a sense of community identity and to provide a range of suitable clothing which, to a large extent, frees young people from the demands of passing fashion.  At Jack Hunt School we aim to instil a purposeful and disciplined spirit into every aspect of school life and to generate pride in belonging to the school.  We believe that the vast majority of parents wish the school to follow a firm and consistent line on uniform.  With the support of parents these aims will be achieved.

No students should arrive at school without the correct uniform unless there is an explanation from the parents.  Where there is no explanation, students will be sent home to change.

*School specific uniform can be purchased direct online from Chroma Sport
