"Bottom Half Garments"

Students are permitted to wear any suitable "bottom half" garments, e.g. trousers/jeans/skirt/shorts.

"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 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.

It is important that upper school students set an example and are suitably attired at all times.
