As of Sept 2022 Poltair School have a new School Uniform.
Year 7 and 8 students will all be wearing our new uniform, and we look forward to seeing as many students in Years 9, 10 and 11 as possible with the new grey blazers and red PE tops. Students in Years 9, 10 and 11 will not be sanctioned for continuing to wear a black blazer or green PE top during the 2023/24 academic year.
For a full guide of acceptable uniform please read our Poltair Uniform Policy
The items of uniform that have changed are the tie, blazer and branded PE items.
Current students will each be given one new school tie at the start of term in Sept 2022. They will be expected to wear the new tie but can wear it with the new or the old blazer and so there is no expectation that students swap to the new blazer immediately. Additional ties can be purchased from Keywear or Screenprint (see supplier links at the bottom of the page).
A new grey embroidered blazer has been introduced to replace the black blazer.
The grey blazer can be purchased from Keywear or Cornwall Screenprint (supplier details are below).
A new reversible red and grey Poltair multi-sports top has been introduced to replace the black and green PE top.
A new grey PE top for all PE lessons has been introduced to replace the green PE top.
Red and grey sports socks have also been introduced as a part of the new PE kit, but students continue to have the option of wearing plain black long games socks instead if preferred.
There is also a new Poltair mid-layer and coat – both of which are optional items.
