All students should present a smart appearance at UTC Leeds. The uniform policy is designed to support a purposeful and safe working atmosphere and we have aimed to make it smart, sensible and comfortable to support students with preparing for the world of work.

We expect students to wear the complete uniform in the appropriate way at all times and ask for full parental/carer co-operation in ensuring students are suitably dressed for school.

Appearance should be of that expected in a work environment and therefore extreme styling is not acceptable. This includes hair colouring and haircuts. Make up should be subtle and jewellery should be limited to one set of simple ear studs per ear. No facial piercings are allowed for safety reasons.
