We expect our students to wear their uniforms with pride. The following points apply to all students:
  • Uniform must be worn correctly at all times. The personal appearance of all pupils must be of the highest standard.
  • Correct uniform must always be worn in School, and for other School activities, unless special instructions are given. Clean sports gear or tracksuits are to be worn to and from sport.
  • Hair must be worn in a neat style, and if longer than shoulder-length must be tied back with Marsden green, brown or black hair tie, Marsden green ribbon, Marsden green ribbon, Marsden green headband, or dark brown hair clips. Hair must be natural in colour.
  • One gold or silver stud earring may be worn in the lobe of each ear. No other jewellery is to be worn.
  • No makeup or nail polish is to be worn. If a student arrives at school wearing makeup or nail polish they will be required to remove it at the school office at the parents' expense.
  • All clothing, watches, wallets and pens must be marked clearly with owner's name.
  • Black hard leather lace up shoes. Parents are requested to see that all shoes are plain, well-fitted and kept in good repair. Suede shoes, ankle boots or light coloured shoes are not acceptable. Shoes with laces around the ankles may not be worn. Laces must be black.
  • A Marsden scarf may be worn to and from school only.
  • Blazers must be worn to and from school, in assembly and for special occasions.
  • Jerseys may not be worn in the street except under a coat or blazer.
  • Summer shirts must be buttoned at the neck.
  • Winter shirts must be buttoned at the neck, and with a tie.
  • Full PE uniform must be worn for PE lessons.
  • A Coverall/paint shirt/Lab coat should be used for lessons as required.
  • A Marsden sunhat must be worn when students are outdoors in Terms 1 and 4 between the hours of 11am and 4pm. This includes PE lessons, outdoor activities and lunchtimes.
