Uniform Policy

The purpose of the Uniform Policy is to create a sense of collective and individual pride in students and their identification with Horsham College.  School Council believes this enables students to participate actively and safely in school life.  The wearing of uniform will apply during school hours, while travelling to and from school and when students are engaged in specified school activities out of school hours.

A committee with representatives from the students, parents and staff have reviewed our uniform. Changes to uniform will be implemented with the understanding that older style uniform can still be worn during the transition time.

General Principle

The following is a description of the expectations Horsham College School Council has with regard to student appearance.  The written requirements of the Uniform Policy take precedence over a student’s individual preference in matters of dress.

Financial assistance (either in full or part) may be available where there is genuine economic hardship being experienced by parents/guardians of students.

Exemptions from the Horsham Uniform Policy can be granted by the Principal (or his/her delegate) where he or she is satisfied that one or more of the following conditions exist:

  • an aspect of the code offends a religious belief held by the student and/or parents/guardians
  • an aspect of the code prevents the student from complying with a requirement of his or her ethnic or cultural background uniform (e.g. Muslim hijab for girls at Horsham College)
  • an aspect of the code prevents students with disabilities from being able to attend school or participate in school activities on the same terms as other students
  • the student has a particular health condition that requires an aspect of the dress code to be departed from
  • other circumstances approved by the Principal

Adult students returning to part-time or full-time study will not be required to wear uniform.

For reasons of neatness, equity and pride in belonging to the college, students are required to wear the complete and correct uniform at school, on excursions, and on their way to and from school.
