Balcarras
School

Uniform

This is designed to provide a smart and admired working outfit for school. Apart from the important considerations of pride in the school, parents should be glad not to have to face the constant question: “What shall I wear today?” School uniform has much to commend it. Details of the Balcarras school are available at the bottom of the page.

Balcarras School has two recognised suppliers where parents can buy uniform. They are:

Schooltogs

House Colours

House colours are worn on the school badge and the summer polo tops. Please make sure you select the correct house colour when purchasing:

  • Foley Green
  • Graveney Yellow
  • Selvey Red
  • Ottewell Blue

The Balcarras Badge and Tie

The Balcarras tie and blazer badge are available for purchase from the school or one of our recognised suppliers. The websites are linked at the top of this page.

Summer Uniform

The school summer uniform may be worn from the start of each Summer Term. Both boys and girls will be able to wear polo shirts, which have the house colours piped on the collar and sleeves and are available from one of our recongised suppliers. This polo shirt should always be worn with the school blazer unless permission is granted otherwise.

 Pupils will also be able to continue to wear winter uniform if they prefer to do so but they must conform to the standard winter uniform rules. We hope this makes clear our uniform expectations.

Please may we remind you, part of the Home-School Agreement is that pupils and parents agree to conform to the uniform requirements of the school. Therefore, if you are in doubt about whether or not a particular article of clothing is suitable or before making any decisions about altering hair colour or style, please contact a Head of House prior to any change.
