School uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos at Kelvin Hall and setting the appropriate tone. In common with most schools in England, we have a school uniform and rules on appearance that we require all students to follow.
We believe that the wearing of a uniform:
supports positive behaviour and discipline;
encourages school ethos and identity;
ensures all students are included and feel welcome;
protects children from social pressures to dress in a particular way;
promotes good relationships.
Above all, we believe that school uniform indicates a student’s readiness for work and therefore supports effective teaching and learning.
Uniform is available through the school’s website where there is a link to APC Clothing and Rawcliffes Schoolwear, based in Hull City Centre. APC attend Induction Evening and visit the school each term so that uniform can be checked for size and ordered. There is a link to both on the school’s website, but if you have any questions please contact your child’s Pastoral Year Leader.
Official school uniform items are available from the following authorised school uniform suppliers:
9 Paragon Street, Hull, HU1 3RJ
Usually in stock at school - sweatshirts, polo shirts, and PE kit.
When purchasing from APC Clothing, please quote reference: khfreepost at the checkout when you order online, ensuring that the student’s name and Year Group are entered in the delivery options section when completing the form. This will ensure the uniform is delivered to school free of charge. Students can collect a guidance leaflet and order form in school from Student Services. Any returns can be made free of charge by bringing incorrect items to Reception.
The school has worked to ensure that all items of uniform are as affordable as possible. Parents who have difficulty affording the uniform can call the school and talk to the Year Leader.
