We expect all pupils to be well turned out with the correct uniform, regular haircuts, polished shoes and a neat and tidy appearance. In the Sixth Form pupils are allowed the privilege of wearing smart business attire to reflect their growing maturity, however this privilege brings with it responsibility and Sixth Formers must set a good example to our younger pupils.

New Sports Kit for 2014

The Headmaster wrote to parents on Friday 2nd May announcing a change in sports kit items, to be introduced from September 2014. Please note that this will be a phased transition and therefore any Shiplake sports kit currently owned may be worn throughout the 2014-2015 academic year. The only exception is the Reversible Sports Shirt, to be worn for all main sports fixtures and House events. All boys must own at least one of these by September 2014. All pupils in the College must then be exclusively wearing the new designs and items by September 2015. All regular school uniform items have remained unchanged.
