School Uniform

School uniform is obligatory. The school's reputation depends to a large extent on the impression the pupils create. Therefore, whether in formal clothes or sports wear, whether within the school or outside, they should be smartly dressed and behave with decorum, remembering that they are ambassadors of whom we and their parents should be proud.

Additional Notes

  • Pupils should be in full school uniform on their way to and from school. Blazers are to be worn at all times except when ‘Summer Uniform Regulations’ apply. Trainers must not be worn except in break times, lunch times and P.E. lessons.
  • If the weather is very hot we have a period of ‘Summer Uniform’ in the second part of the Summer Term. During this time blazers and ties need not be worn. This period will not begin until it has been announced officially.
  • Girls may wear a skirt or trousers. Skirts should be around knee length. They should not be too short or too long nor should they be tight fitting. Trousers should be tailored, black with straight legs and should not be tight fitting
  • KTS school uniform items can be purchased from The Shirt Monkeys, click here to order online or call/email Tel: 07828148179/orders@theshirtmonkeys.co.uk and Hawkins Limited, Bucklersbury, Hitchin. Both suppliers stock all the uniform with the school motif and all the non-motif items. KTS non-motif items such as blazers, school shirts, boys' and girls' trousers etc. may be purchased from any clothier including Tesco in Baldock.
  • Hair: Extremes of style and colour are not allowed. Only natural colours are allowed. Boys' hair should be no longer than the collar, nor should it be too short (i.e. closely cropped: No. 2 is the shortest acceptable cut). No patterns or varying lengths should be cut into the hair. If in doubt please consult the relevant Year Leader. A small amount of gel is permitted. Pupils should be clean-shaven.
  • No make-up or nail varnish or is to be worn in Year 7 to 9. In Year 10 to 11, girls may wear a discreet amount of make up. Girls with pierced ears may wear one pair of plain gold studs or small sleepers, one per ear and in the lobe. Boys are not allowed to wear earrings. Body or tongue piercing and tattoos are not allowed.
  • Baseball caps should not be worn in or to and from school.
  • Coats should not be carried or worn around the school. They should be hung up in Form Rooms or kept in lockers. Hoodies are not permitted.
  • Girls' shoes should be as flat as possible.
  • Every pupil is provided with a locker. They must use their lockers to store equipment and anything of value they bring to school. The school cannot accept responsibility for belongings left elsewhere. Pupils will have their own key which must be kept safely. They must make a note of their key number in their school diary.
  • For their lessons pupils are expected to have a fountain pen (not ballpoint), cartridges, a rubber, a ruler, black and coloured pencils. Certain subjects will require pupils to have specialist equipment. Pupils must always have their homework diary with them and properly completed. Most items are available from our stationery shop which is open every break time.
  • Pupils are provided with exercise and textbooks. They must take good care of their books which must be covered. Sturdy plastic covers, bearing the school crest, are available from the school shop which opens every break time. Pupils will be expected to pay for replacements for any books which are lost or damaged. Pupils will be expected to have the correct books for lessons according to their timetable.
  • Mobile phones, iPods, etc. may be brought into school but this is entirely at the owner’s risk and must NEVER be used during lessons. This will automatically lead to the item being confiscated and passed to the relevant Year Leader, who will not return it until at least the end of that school day. Pupils are responsible for keeping their belongings safe and using their own lockers to do so. They should certainly not leave such things lying around or in bags or jackets which are unattended particularly during PE periods.
