In key stage 5 students are subject to a dress/appearance code and are required to wear "top half" Cardiff High endorsed garments in order to both identify them as members of our school and also to promote a sense of identity and belonging amongst our upper school students.

Students are permitted wear any suitable "bottom half" garments eg trousers/jeans/skirt

In consideration of previous requests it was agreed that tailored black shorts, with the school badge, will be added to the summer uniform for both boys and girls, these can only be purchased from YC Sports, no other shorts will be permitted and students will be sent home to change.

"Top Half Garments"

Students can then select from a variety of different coloured Cardiff High endorsed "top half" garments showing the school badge.  Eg T-shirts, Polo shirts, sweatshirts or hoodies.  Students are permitted to wear garments purchased to indicate a membership of a team, society or trip as long as the Cardiff High badge is clearly visible.  Students are not permitted to wear any top half garments which do not display the school badge.
