At Sir John Nelthorpe School, we aim to achieve standards of excellence in all areas of school life including appearance. We believe that when worn correctly, the uniform represents the standards that the school expects to achieve. It says to the local and wider community that Sir John Nelthorpe School is a high achieving community where students understand the difference between the expectations of the world of work and how they dress for their social life out of school. We also feel strongly that it represents equality for all students. Wearing a smart uniform is an important factor in encouraging a disciplined ethos at Sir John Nelthorpe School. It is the policy of the school Governors therefore, that students shall wear school uniform as described in the policy; please note that fashion items are not permitted.
All students in Years 7 to 11 are expected to be dressed correctly on their journey to and from school, whilst at school and on school organised activities, unless otherwise instructed. There can be no exception to this rule and we look for the support of all parents to ensure this.
Should parents have any problems regarding uniform, they should not hesitate to contact the school at any time.
A copy of the school uniform policy can be found here.
The majority of our uniform is available from several stockists in the area to give you options as to how to purchase. The only compulsory school logo badged items are the blazer, the boys' tie, and the sports tops for PE. The girls blouse is most easily sourced from the official stockist. Any remaining items can be purchased from wherever you choose providing they meet the school's standard uniform requirements. To ensure the correct style of garment, please visit the official stockist website or outlet or contact the school before purchasing garments elsewhere, as any non-compliant styles or colours of uniform items will not be permitted.
For new intake parents, we will display examples of the uniform and PE kit at the transition evening and will have information as to how you are able to purchase the items along with price lists. Help and guidance will also be available.
The official stockists of Sir John Nelthorpe School's badged items are Uniform Direct
Direct ordering online via: www.uniform-direct.com/acatalog/Sir-John-Nelthorpe.html
The Grimsby store is the main stockist of our uniform. The Gainsborough and Lincoln stores hold some items of uniform in stock however; all items can be ordered into the store of your choice.
If purchasing a blazer from an outlet other than Uniform Direct, you must ensure it matches the style of the approved blazer. Uniform Direct are able to embroider a Sir John Nelthorpe logo onto blazer's for the price of £5.00.
Parents/Carers are entitled to seek alternative providers for non-badged items of uniform, but due to the many variables between suppliers in terms of material, quality, colour-match, etc. It is important to check the uniform details carefully on the Uniform Direct website before seeking the same item elsewhere in order to avoid incurred costs of purchasing the wrong style etc.
We also keep one sample of each item of uniform at school for parents/carers wishing to check before ordering/purchasing from their chosen outlet.
