Uniform Guidelines

Uniform Guidelines

Newcastle High School is a uniform wearing school. Our Uniform Policy is the result of extensive consultation with the school community and is a feature of the participation focus of our PBL initiative. Our promotion of uniform aims to ensure:

  • all students are equal
  • there is no competition
  • conflict is reduced
  • safety is heightened
  • identification of our students is clear
  • students take pride in our school

Our Uniform Expectations

These guidelines have been developed through consultation with staff, students and parents over an extensive period.

It is expected that students who attend Newcastle High School wear appropriate school uniform at all times.

If for any reason a student is unable to be present in an appropriate uniform, they should provide a signed note from a parent or carer detailing the issue and requesting consideration for a nominated period of time. Notes should be submitted to a Deputy Principal or Head Teacher Wellbeing for consideration.

You can view Uniform Range to see our style, our uniform comprises: 

  • appropriate footwear - black leather shoes
  • navy blue long pants or navy blue shorts or skirt - tartan for junior girls a navy blue for senior girls
  • school shirt or polo
  • school jumper, school tracksuit top, school jersey or blue jumper or blue school fleece or sloppy joe

Parents, carers and students are reminded that jumpers should not have a logo other than that of Newcastle High School and only 'hoodies' from the school uniform range are permitted.

Students may wear full sport uniform on sports day for the entire day with the appropriate school jumper. On days where students have practical physical education lessons they wear full school uniform and bring their PE uniform to change into before the lesson.

Accessories, such as scarves and hats, are expected to complement the school uniform, the cooperation of students and parents and carers in this matter is appreciated.

To stand out as an individual is a personal challenge, to start on a level playing field is a basic right.
