Uniform

Our uniform is designed to be comfortable for students to wear, good value and smart. 
We introduced a new style uniform from Sept 2020, all new intakes from this date are required to wear the new style uniform and students in other years are also welcome to wear it.  We believe the new uniform is a significant improvement over the old and that our students will much prefer it.  The new items are easy care with the blazer and PE kit being non-iron and washable at 30o. We have sourced environmentally responsible items and the jacket is made from recycled bottle tops.

All students in Years 7-11 are required to wear correct, neat and tidy uniform in school and on the journey to and from school.

To aid the return of misplaced items, please ensure that all items are labelled with the student’s name.

Trutex have taken over the supply of our uniform from June 2021. Their contact details are: Unit 3, Sugarmill Retail Park, Billacombe Road, PL9 7HT. 01752 491353. Or visit their website:  www.plymouth.trutex.com Trutex still require ALL customers to wear a face covering when entering their shop.  This will continue for the foreseeable future. 

The new style uniform is compulsory for Year 7 & 8 whilst students in other years can choose to wear the new or old uniform.

Uniform Swap Shop

Uniform Swap Shop and Second-hand Uniform Sales

We are pleased to announce the launch of a Uniform Swap Shop at Plymouth High School for Girls.
Staff and students are passionate about sustainability and recycling, so to offer pre-loved uniform is an opportunity we would like to expand on. This will provide parents and carers to swap clean, good condition items of uniform, for a different size, or to buy an item of preloved, looked after uniform at a fraction of the cost of brand new.

Proceeds of the sales will be put back into our school. Any second-hand uniform we cannot use will go to charity to be recycled, nothing goes to landfill.

The Swap Shop will be student led, but overseen by myself. I can also take enquiries about availability and sizes etc by email or phone. J.Straker@tsatrust.org.uk

We are NOT accepting any more donations of the old style uniform, as we have plenty and currently only the older students can wear it. It will be phased out over the next few years. Nor do we want any second-hand white shirts.
We will, however, accept donations of the new style uniform. As follows:

  • Blazer - Eco David Luke
  • Skirt - Trutex
  • Jumper - Trutex badged
  • PE shorts – SWI with white piping
  • PE skort – SWI with white piping
  • PE long-sleeved top (optional) - Aptus
  • PE short-sleeved top - Aptus
  • Plain navy leggings/tracksuit bottoms
So, if your child is growing at the rate of knots, or needs an item of uniform they don’t have, you may wish to enquire about the pre-loved uniform we have at school, to swap one for one or buy.
(Prices on request).

Years 7 & 8 – new style uniform only
Years 9, 10, 11 – new style or old style uniform

Please get in touch

Jewellery.

Students in Year 7 to 11 may wear a single stud earring in the lobe of one or both ears.  No other piercings are permitted.

A watch may be worn, but no other form of jewellery can be worn, including rings, bracelets and necklaces.

If a student wears any non-permitted piercing to school, they will be asked to remove it. 

Make-up.

Make-up may be worn to cover blemishes but must be of a subtle nature. Nail varnish must not be worn. Nails must be worn at a length no longer than the tip of the finger on health and safety grounds. No acrylic nails or gels.

Hair.

Hair must be a natural colour and cut in an acceptable style. Hair accessories, if worn, should be plain navy, black, brown, beige, blonde or white.

Aerosols

No aerosols of any kind, i.e. deodorants, hairspray etc. are permitted in school as they may trigger asthma attacks in other students.

If any uniform rules are broken by a student, then they will result in a consequence in line with the behaviour policy.
