School Uniform

For some years we have been promoting the wearing, by pupils, of school uniform, i.e. pupils dressing in such a way as to be clearly seen as belonging to The Nicolson Institute Community. Pupils must at all times be dressed smartly.

Pupils at all stages have the option of wearing the traditional uniform of:

• White shirt and school tie
• Grey or black trousers or skirt
• Black shoes

or the “smart casual” alternative of:

• School sweatshirt/hoody
• (S1/2 – Royal blue; S3/4/5/6 – Navy Blue)
• and/or school polo-shirt (white)
• Grey or black trousers or skirt
• Black shoes

For formal occasions (e.g. prizegiving) the traditional uniform should be worn. For daily use the sweatshirt/hoody and/or polo-shirt is normally worn by 90% of students: these are obtainable directly from the school shop.
