School Uniform

The school community of Concord High School endorses, supports and expects students to be in uniform. For pricing and information on our uniform shop, please see the uniform shop page.

In endorsing the wearing of uniform by all students in the school, we recognise the principles of equity and safety for all students.

Uniform is an important part of the development of the school as it presents the first (and often lasting) impression people form about the school and its students. We want our students to be seen in a positive way. There are a number of specific advantages uniform gives to students and parents.

  1. It provides security in the sense of easily identifying where students come from should there be an accident or incident. It certainly allows identification of people who do not belong in the school.
  2. Economically it presents a better alternative to buying brand names and the demand to continually upgrade to the latest trends and fads. It thus ensures greater equity for all.
  3. The uniform promotes a sense of common purpose, consistency and unity in the daily activities of students. Wearing it develops pride in achievement and the school, which helps to establish the culture of the school.

Much time and effort has gone into designing and making available a uniform which is attractive, practical and comfortable for students. Financial assistance may be available for families who need it to enable all to access the uniform. (Please inquire at the office. Your situation will be handled with discretion). We therefore expect all families to support the wearing of the uniform in a proper and respectful manner. This includes wearing hard leather black shoes throughout the year and the school tie in winter (Terms 2 & 3 for male students). The full PE uniform is also to be worn for PE lessons and representative sporting commitments. The uniform is described in the Student Information booklet.

In enrolling your child at Concord High School, you are acknowledging your awareness of the commitment of the school to its uniform and undertake to support the school in supplying the uniform to your child and insisting on them wearing it consistently.
