School Uniform

It has always been a shared belief that our uniform was an important part of maintaining the ethos of which Park View has always been renowned for: it delineates a student’s study time from his/her leisure time whilst also providing a sense of shared identity. Indeed, countless generations have worn the black and gold with pride over the years, their blazers marking them out in the town as young people of real quality.

The current uniform policy was introduced in September 2016. This maintains our school identity through the black and gold colours whilst clearly identifying compulsory items which will standardise expectations  across all students and thus remove any debate. The uniform is:

Uniform Requirements
Compulsory: Black Blazer with gold braid inc house crest
Compulsory: Black trousers or pleated skirts with school crest (slim or straight leg trouser options)
Compulsory: Black and gold clip-on tie
Compulsory: White shirt/blouse
Compulsory: Plain black shoes (not trainers, boots, plimsolls or canvas shoes)
Optional: Black and gold v-neck jumper with school crest


PE Kit Requirements
Compulsory: ​Black/White Akoa Girls or Boys Polo Top embroidered with Park View School logo or​ plain black polo top
Recommended​: Black/White Akoa PE Hoodie embroidered with Park View School logo or​ plain black hoodie
Optional: Black/White Akoa Rain Jacket embroidered with Park View School logo or a plain black sports/rain jacket
Compulsory: ​Black Tracksuit Bottoms/leggings embroidered with Park View School logo or​ plain black tracksuit bottoms or sports leggings
Optional: ​PE Plain Black Shorts
Optional:​ PE Plain Black Socks
Compulsory: Suitable trainers of any colour
Recommended: Studded Football/Rugby Boots of any colour

Students injured and/or excused from PE are still required to change fully into the correct PE kit for the lesson. This is so that they may be involved in a coaching, officiating or leadership capacity while keeping their uniform clean and dry.

For certain activities, (such as Rugby), students may be encouraged to wear old clothing of any colour that they do not mind being stretched or getting very dirty. This is however at the discretion of their PE teacher and will be communicated directly to students.

Students selected to represent the school in certain sporting fixtures will be provided with a shirt/jersey/vest to wear, but will need to have their own shorts/socks/skorts as appropriate.  They will also need studded boots and shin pads for football training/matches, and studded boots for rugby training/matches.
