Uniform Policy

Helston Community College has a new PE Kit which can be purchased through Whirlwind Sports, see below.
Please note that students are able to continue to wear their old PE Kit until they have grown out of the clothing, at which time the new PE Kit should be purchased from the new supplier, Whirlwind Sports.


Any make-up should be discrete and modestly applied. Coloured nail varnish should not be worn.

Hair styles
We ask that hair styles are reasonable. There should be no obvious hair dye, designs shaved into the hair, or closely shaved heads. 

We allow one pair of small studs (one in each ear), a discreet nose stud and a wrist watch. (No other piercings are acceptable - tongue, lip, eyebrow etc.) All jewellery must be removed for PE lessons.

School socks / tights must be dark and plain in colour. White socks, bright colours, patterns or stripes are not permitted.

School trousers should be formal, not a jean type, chino cut, or leggings. As a guide, there should be some space between the leg and the material from the knee down and this part of the garment should be able to hold a crease. They should be full length and rest on the shoe. They should not be turned up.

School skirts should be of a suitable length and be appropriate for the workplace (i.e. close to the knee).Tube skirts are not allowed.

Black footwear, low heeled and sensible, with black laces and no visible logos. Boots, open toed shoes and flip flops are not appropriate for school wear due to Health & Safety concerns.

Black belts may only be worn through belt loops on trousers or skirts - not as fashion accessories.

Shorts may be worn all year but must be formal black knee length of a formal/tailored type cut, any others will not be allowed. 

We now have a dedicated email for uniform enquiries, so can all uniform enquiries be directed to uniform@helston.tpacademytrust.org
