Uniform and equipment

Uniform can be purchased from our suppliers, Match Fit Kit.  Uniform ordered from Match Fit Kit will be delivered to your home address. Non branded items are available to purchase from a wide range of high street stores.

Unfortunately, Match Fit Kit are not currently able to visit the school  and offer the opportunity to purchase on site.  However, representatives are available to answer any queries you may have via sales@matchfitkit.com They advise taking careful note of the measuring and sizing guidance on their website and of course wish to reassure parents and carers that their returns policy will be extended in light of the current situation.

The governors’ policy on uniform must be followed by all students.  Decisions on the suitability of all uniform items and appearance are at the discretion of Brockington College.  If in doubt as to the appropriateness of uniform items, please contact the school for advice.  We would take this opportunity to ask parents/carers to support us in upholding our uniform policy.

Please remember that hairstyles should be suitable for school and pupils must avoid unnatural colours and styles.  For students in year 9 and above, make-up should not be obvious, such as ‘orange foundation’, lipstick, heavy eyeliner, false eyelashes or nails.

All uniform issues will be brought to the attention of the pastoral team and where possible resolved by the provision of appropriate clothing items.  In extreme cases, students may be placed in isolation until the matter is resolved satisfactorily.

Please see our uniform policy here Policies – Brockington College for a full list of uniform items.

PE uniform

If for any reason your child does not have their kit or a medical note explaining that they are unable to take part in the lesson, we are unable to make alternative provision.  Our policy is similar to most secondary schools in that students who are not able to do PE are expected to join the PE group, listening to the theory aspects and helping with duties as instructed by the teacher. This is also the same policy for outdoor lessons.  It is therefore important that students have a coat and warm clothing to observe the lesson if they are outdoors.

If your child has a medical reason for not participating practically in a PE lesson, please supply your child with a note to give to their PE teacher on the day of their PE lesson.

If your child has a medical condition that is likely to last for several weeks, please contact your child’s PE teacher to explore arrangements that can be made in such exceptional circumstances.


Learning is at the centre of our school motto and encompasses all of the other school values. It is about being taught, being able to discover and understand. Naturally, certain basic items of equipment are vital to learning daily in school. 

The bible states; “Wise men and women are always learning, always listening for fresh insights.” (Proverbs 18:15)

Students will need to bring the following items to school each day in their school bag:

  • Pencils (HB)
  • Pens (black and blue)
  • Coloured pencils
  • Eraser
  • Clear ruler
  • Good quality glue stick
  • A small set of unbranded ear buds or headphones (for music and computing lessons)
  • A pencil case
  • A maths set (protractor, compasses)
  • A scientific calculator (e.g. Casio)

Mobile phones

Students may bring a mobile phone to school, but this is at their own risk.  Students must ensure that mobile phones remain in lockers throughout the school day.  If a mobile phone is seen during school hours, it will be confiscated and parents/carers will have to collect it from the school office.
