Transferring from Primary

To help pupils and parents through the transition, there are a number of opportunities to learn about Sheringham High School.

The process has been carefully thought out to ensure that the transfer is as smooth and pleasant as possible, however, due to the current Covid-19 pandemic we have obviously had to adapt this. 

Basic Equipment

  • BLACK pens
  • Pencil and pencil sharpener
  • Ruler
  • Rubber
  • Coloured pencils/Pens
  • Approved scientific calculator

Uniform Information

Our main uniform supplier is Stevensons’, based at 67 Ber Street Norwich NRI 3AD; telephone 01603 622355. However, parents can also purchase uniform on line. Further information can be obtained from their website: norwichbranch@stevensons.co.uk.

  • Burgundy Sheringham High School fleece with logo and/or Burgundy Sheringham High School sweatshirt with logo.
  • Trutex pleated Harrow grey from Stevensons’ OR Girls' Permanent Pleated Grey Skirt from Marks and Spencer OR Girls Grey Pleated School Skirt 2 Pack from George at Asda. Skirts should be knee length. They should not be shorter. They should not be made of jersey or lycra.
  • Trousers, should be plain black school trousers and should not have any adornments (e.g. studs, rivets, fancy stitching or belts).  Trousers should not be made from any sort of lycra, corduroy or denim.  Jeans, jeggings, chinos or very tight fitting trousers are not allowed. Trousers must cover students’ ankles and their socks.
  • Black leather or polishable leather style shoes.  Trainers are not allowed.  Shoes must be totally black with no coloured stripes or markings.  Shoes should not be open-toed or have heels higher than 5cm. Black, plain ankle boots are acceptable but should not have fur around them or any other adornments.
  • Plain coat.  Denim jackets/coats/blousons are not permitted.
  • Students have the option of wearing a burgundy school hoody. The hoody is available from Stevensons’ and has the School logo on the front and “Sheringham High School” across the back.
  • Students will be allowed to wear tailored knee length black shorts in the second half of the summer term, after the May half – term holiday. These shorts are unisex and are only available from Stevenson’s.

Jewellery and Hair

Jewellery should be limited to a watch and a pair of stud earrings. Dangly earrings and facial piercings are not allowed, neither are bracelets, bangles or other kinds of jewellery. Students will be expected to remove piercings. The excuse that they may heal up will not be accepted. Parents and students should consider this if they decide to get noses, tongues or chins pierced towards the end of a holiday or during term-time.

Hairstyles should be sensible and not extreme. Hair should not stand out from the norm or attract undue interest.

School staff may well insist that students tie back very long hair when carrying out practical tasks.

Hair needs to be one natural colour. Two-tone hair is unacceptable as are extreme colours. Once again, parents and students should be aware that colouring hair at the end of a holiday cannot be used as an excuse on a student’s return to school and the student faces the prospect of isolation.

Hair bands, ribbons should be discreet and not extreme.

Tram lines or other shaved shapes in the hair or eyebrows are not permitted

School staff will decide what is discreet when considering hair and jewellery.

Make up should be minimal and students may well be asked to remove excessive make – up or lipstick.

Students should not wear nail varnish and acrylic/ false nails are not allowed. Students are asked to ensure their nails are not excessively long.

Compulsory kit is as follows.

  • Black and white polo shirt
  • Plain black shorts
  • White or black knee length or ankle socks
