School Uniform

Our uniform unites the school community

Stirling High School - School Uniform

Our school community is very proud of how smart our young people are and how well they represent themselves, the school and their families. Our uniform unites the school community; our pupils come from many different backgrounds and the uniform instils a sense of common identity.

Uniform rationale

  • Our uniform unites the school community; our pupils come from many different backgrounds and the uniform instils a sense of common identity.

  • Our uniform saves pupils putting fashion before learning. Our uniform minimises peer pressure for expensive ‘fashion’ items and is inclusive for everyone.

  • Our uniform, and in particular our blazer, allows the community to see the great behaviour and good citizenship of our pupils on their way to and from school.

  • Our uniform, including our blazer, gives pupils a strong visual identity when representing the school at inter-school and community events.

  • Our uniform minimises factions that may resort to bullying pupils for the clothes they wear.

  • Our uniform clearly identifies our pupils as part of the school community when issues of security arise. It is important for staff to identify quickly any person who may be in school and not part of our school community; our uniform, particularly our blazer, allows us to do this.

  • Our uniform reinforces good behaviour; our pupils dress smartly and are well behaved. It is an ever present visual reminder of our values.

  • Our uniform prepares young people for the world of work as many will have to wear uniforms in the workplace.

  • Our uniform shows that you are ready for work and have adopted a positive mind-set for the working school day.
