Uniform requirements

  • All Helenswood items carry the school logo and all uniform must be named.

  • Black plimsolls are not to be worn in place of low-heeled black school shoes and school tights should be plain navy, black or beige.
  • For health and hygiene reasons we do continue to ask that hair is tied back.
