St Francis Xavier’s College insists that all boys wear the correct full uniform in its entirety at all times including coming to and from school. This is all part of the high expectations that we have for our students.

Outdoor coats must not be worn inside school at any time.

All clothes should be clearly labelled with the student’s name.

At no time will our students be allowed to wear hooded sweatshirts, tracksuit tops, jeans or trainers.

Earrings, metal long toothed combs and jewellery are not allowed for safety reasons.

We expect all our parents to support us with our strict uniform policy. We believe that if boys dress correctly for work, they perform better in lessons. This has been proven to be right over many years of excellence.

Our uniform policy is a fundamental part of our behaviour and discipline policy. Students that fail to dress appropriately will always be issued with a consequence, the nature of the consequence will be decided by the severity of the offence and the frequency of previous offences.

Years 7 to Year 11

  • School red blazer with the school badge.
  • Plain grey formal school trousers.
  • Official grey ‘V’ neck school jumper with the school badge. This is not compulsory but is advised. It will be compulsory for Year 7 in 2020.
  • Plain white collared shirt. (Can be long or short sleeved)
  • School tie.
  • Black formal leather shoes (training shoes, suede shoes of any kind are not allowed).

  • The official school PE kit must be worn for all PE lessons and sporting events

Haircuts

Markings or symbols which have been cut into the scalp or eyebrows are not allowed. Shaved heads are not allowed any shorter than a Number 1 cut.

Haircuts which give offence to the discipline and good order of the school or in the opinion of the Headmaster prejudice the uniform policy are also forbidden.

We accept that students wish to use their haircut to express their individuality, however they must do so within the realms of neatness.

The Headmaster reserves the right to determine when a haircut is contrary to the school uniform policy.

Boys with unsuitable haircuts will be sent home at the discretion of the Headmaster in order to amend the issue.

Mobile Phones

Mobile phones are never allowed on school premises and will be confiscated if seen. We will search clothing and bags for mobile phones, if we believe that a student has one.

Any refusal to willingly pass the phone over will be dealt with as part of the School Behaviour Policy.

Mobile phones will only be returned to parents.

The school will not accept responsibility for loss or damage to mobile phones within school.
