What will you need?

BOYS & GIRLS

Compulsory Items: (•available only from specified suppliers)           

•          Black College blazer with Honiton Community College Academy Trust logo.

•          College tie.

•          A College black ‘V’ neck jumper with College logo is optional in the colder months. (The blazer must still be worn)

-           Plain black full length tailored trousers which do not trail on floor (stretch, baggy, flared, or bell-bottoms - jeans, canvas, or corduroy trousers are not acceptable).

If belts are worn they should be narrow and plain black with a normal buckle.  Logos on belts and buckles are unacceptable.

-           Plain long sleeved white shirt with a collar, not fitted and must be long enough to be tucked in. (In the summer term a short sleeved shirt is acceptable).

 -           Plain black school shoes only (no trainers).  Boots (flat-soled, waterproof) are acceptable only if they are plain black and are worn inside trousers.

Trainers, sandals, flip-flops, dolly shoes, canvas or high-heeled shoes will not be acceptable. A shoe that covers the bridge of the foot and encloses the toes is ideal.  A pair of ‘leather’ shoes covering most of the foot is best as it provides protection against anything that could be dropped in Technology or Science, and will keep the feet warm and dry in poor weather.
