Farlingaye High School

School Uniform requirements

As well as giving a sense of belonging to the school, uniform is also important in helping to establish a good working atmosphere. Our uniform is chosen to be practical and affordable and we are reliant on the support of parents, in ensuring that all students are appropriately dressed for school.


The Head teacher has the right to decide if any style or item of clothing, or hairstyle, is inappropriate for school.


Uniform may be purchased from COES of Ipswich, 20-28 Norwich Road, Ipswich

(Tel: 01473 256061) or from supermarkets or other sources. The jumper and skirt must be purchased from COES.
