At Risedale we believe that our uniform helps pupils to feel part of the Risedale Family.


The school uniform and PE kit is a requirement for every pupil and is available to purchase from

Our Uniform:

  • Blazer: A black blazer with patch pockets embroidered with the school badge. 
  • Tie: A House tie – a clip on.
    • Pupils wear a tie in their specific house colour generating a strong sense of identity and belonging (Attenborough, Pankhurst, Seacole, Turing).
    • Replacement ties are available to purchase either via ParentPay or from the school reception by bringing £5.50 cash into school.
  • Shirt: Formal white shirt or fitted blouse (worn tucked in) with neck button fastening for the tie.
  • Skirts: Plain black, knee length (No stretch/t-shirt material allowed).
    or Trousers: Plain black, long (No denim material, no leggings, no jeggings, no skinny-leg trousers).
  • Jumper: An optional plain black crew or V-neck jumper may be worn (No hoodies, no jumpers with large logos and no sports tops).
  • Shoes: Plain black dress shoes or boots only.
  • Black socks only or black/neutral coloured tights.
  • Belts must be black with a small plain buckle.
  • Face covering / mask: All pupils must bring a face covering to school every day and be prepared to wear as/when required.

The school has the right to respond to current styles of fashion in order to maintain consistency and standards of uniform. Failure to comply with uniform regulations will result in isolation until the issue is resolved. Please be careful accepting what supermarkets offer in their 'school uniform section'; these clothes often do not comply with school uniform regulations.
