School Uniform
The wearing of uniform is strongly encouraged. It is noticeable that children who come to school smartly dressed, looking ready for a good day’s school work, are more inclined to display the right sort of attitudes to behaviour and classroom studies. Uniform also helps to reinforce the feeling of school community.

The uniform list that follows is for both Hiltingbury Schools and is very closely in line with that of Thornden School.

Please provide your child with a school bag, in which he or she can carry a lunch box, books, homework and various other items between home and school. The bag should be about 30 cm wide, and must fit in a locker. Large ‘holdall- type’ bags cannot be accommodated.

Jewellery & Make Up
This is not appropriate in a primary school and we ask parents not to allow pupils to wear it. Children with pierced ears may wear simple ear studs, but these must be removed for PE.
