"Education is the key to unlocking the world, a passport to freedom." - Oprah Winfrey

Uniform

At Bethany College we take pride in our appearance and wish to present a tailored and professional image to the community. To achieve this, a high standard of dress is required from students at all times.

General Uniform

The College badge should be worn on the left lapel of each girls uniform.

Hair must be tied back and must not be coloured in unnatural or multi-coloured tones. It should be cut in a conservative style, for example, undercuts are not permitted.

Ribbons, scrunchies and headbands must be maroon, white or blue with the old uniform, or navy with the new uniform.

The only jewellery that is permitted with school uniform is as follows:

  • one plain gold or silver ring.
  • one set of plain gold or silver studs or sleepers worn in the lowest lobe of the ear. No nose or tongue studs or any other visible facial piercing will be accepted. Nor will students be permitted to wear clear, plastic studs in their place. They need removal.
  • a watch.

Coloured nail polish and make-up (except for natural coloured lip balm) is not to be worn with the uniform at any time. Clear nail polish only. Nails should be kept to an appropriate length to prevent a student harming themselves or others during the course of school activities. Acrylic nails are generally too long and inappropriate for active, school use.

One small gold or silver chain with a cross or Christian symbol may be worn around the neck.

 

Optional Items

The College scarf is optional with the winter uniform.

If students feel that it is necessary to wear more clothes for warmth during winter, they must be worn under the regular uniform e.g. spencers, foot socks etc. Assorted jumpers and tracksuit jackets are not acceptable.

The College jumper and vest are optional garments that can be worn under the blazer or cardigan for extra warmth.
