Uniforms and Uniform Shop

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

Hair is to be tied back and is not to be coloured in unnatural or multi-coloured tones nor should it be cut in a style that invokes comment. Undercuts are not permitted.

College ribbon is available from the uniform shop.

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 studs or any other visible facial piercing will be accepted.
  • a watch.
  • one fine gold or silver chain with a cross or Christian symbol may be worn around the neck.

Coloured nail polish and make-up (except for natural coloured lip balm) is not to be worn with the uniform at any time. Nails should be kept to an appropriate length to prevent a student harming themselves or others during the course of school activities. The only acceptable nail polish is clear.
