The DfE strongly encourages schools in England to have a school uniform as it can play a key role in:
- promoting the ethos of the school
- providing a sense of belonging and identity
- setting an appropriate tone for education
Beverley High School expects all its pupils to look smart and to adhere to its dress code. We rely on parents/carers to support us in ensuring that their children are appropriately dressed for school. Parents/carers should ensure that all items of their child’s clothing are clearly labelled with the correct name.

Beverley Joint Sixth Form
Please note that there is not a school uniform for students in Years 12 and 13, though we expect students to dress appropriately for a work day at school.
Second Hand Uniform
The school requests that parents donate any unwanted uniform items to school (particularly at the end of Year 11). The school donates the uniform which has been given to the school to a Beverley charity shop so that parents can purchase second hand. We advertise to parents the charity shop (currently Dove House Hospice) to which we donate all second-hand uniform.
Should parents be unable to source second hand uniform and are suffering financial hardship, they are invited to apply to the school for a one-off hardship grant for assistance with school uniform items and/or generic uniform items such as school shoes/coats etc.
