Uniform & Equipment

At South Molton Community College we believe that school uniform encourages a sense of belonging, equality and reinforces school identity. School uniform is to be worn by all students whilst at school and during journeys to and from school. 

Blazers must normally be worn at all times, unless a teacher gives permission for it to be removed, a black v-neck jumper (available from the official school outfitter, see below) may be worn underneath. Hooded tops and cardigans are not allowed.  Shirts should be tucked in trousers/skirts at all times.

All items must be clearly marked with the pupil’s name.

Update 18th June 2021.  We are now in summer uniform until the end of the summer term;

  • tailored black shorts allowed, no sport shorts
  • blazers optional
  • ties can be removed in class if room is hot and teacher agrees
  • if child wears a blazer they can take it off in class

The remainder of the uniform remains the same.
