Purchasing and wearing the correct uniform indicates a willingness to engage with and be a part of Deyes High School. We require all pupils to wear the correct uniform at all times. We expect parents to champion our uniform and support us by expecting their child to choose, purchase and wear our uniform correctly.
We publish a set of uniform requirements (see below) to ensure students and parents clearly understand what is / is not acceptable. Deviation from the requirements will be dealt with on every occasion. We expect parents to fully support us in this endeavour.

Tie - Deyes High School tie, with the appropriate colour for the year group. Worn to conceal the fastened top button and long enough to reach the waistband of the skirt or trousers.
