Uniform at MHS
Montpelier High School (MHS) has very high expectations of all students and their standards of dress and appearance are very important both when in school and travelling to and from school. Our students represent the school at all times in their uniform and we ask that they take pride in wearing it correctly.
We ensure all our students have correct uniform and standards of dress to build upon our core values of respect and responsibility and to ensure all students are equally valued and can focus upon their learning.
Our approach to uniform also ensures students’ safety both whilst in school but also makes them clearly identifiable and distinct when on visits/trips or on their journey to and from the site.
The uniform code states whether
- items are a compulsory requirement
- items are optional
- items will only be worn at certain times of the year (for example, optional winter items of PE kit)
- where items can be purchased from (eg from Monkhouse Uniforms or other retailers)
THE STANDARD OF A STUDENT’S UNIFORM WILL BE CHECKED. WHEN STUDENTS ARE DRESSED IN THEIR UNIFORM, THEY ARE REPRESENTING MONTPELIER HIGH SCHOOL AND WE ASK THAT THEIR UNIFORM IS CLEAN AND SMARTLY PRESENTED AT ALL TIMES.

Branded uniform with the Montpelier High School crest is available to purchase from Monkhouse Schoolwear Specialists at Unit 1 Simmonds View, Stoke Gifford, BS34 8HR (tel: 0117 962 0011).
We sell 'iron on' badges to cover over the old CGS emblem on existing CGS blazers with the Montpelier High School emblem. These are available to purchase from Parent Pay.
All students must wear correct school uniform to and from school and during the school day. This will also be the requirement for school trips, unless otherwise specified.
School physical education uniform must be worn for all physical education lessons and matches.
Labelling of Uniform
All school uniform and physical education kit must be clearly marked with fully named tapes. Order forms for name tapes are available from the school shop. All equipment and footwear must also be clearly named. This will be checked during your daughter’s first lessons.
