At Rastrick High School, we aim to achieve standards of excellence in all areas of school life including appearance.
We believe that when worn correctly, the uniform represents the standards that the school expects to achieve. It says to the local and wider community that Rastrick High School is a high achieving community where students understand the difference between the expectations of the world of work and how they dress for their social life out of school. We also feel strongly that it represents equality for all students.

Because all of our students wear a clearly recognisable uniform, it is easy to identify strangers. On the way to and from school it also affords a degree of safety as the students are part of a large body of young people who will look out for each other.
Putting on uniform is a signal you are going to work hard and learn.
Students have told us that if they look smart they will have more self-belief and achieve more.
Uniform and team kits help our students to demonstrate pride in their school.
Many jobs require staff to wear a uniform or there is often a dress code. Uniform helps young people get used to dressing to a prescribed standard and know the difference between formal and informal dress.
Uniform eliminates the stress placed on students to purchase and wear expensive, fashionable items.
Uniform is a relatively inexpensive way of dressing young people for school.
