Sports Kit

In September 2016, we introduced a new Shrewsbury School Sports Kit. Please see Sports Kit Guidelines for full details.  


Smart Informal Guidelines

Jacket; corduroys/chinos or smart trousers/knee-length skirt; shirt/blouse with collar; tie to be worn with shirt not necessarily a school tie; leather/suede smart shoes; no jeans or other casual wear.

Casual clothing must be clean and tidy, and not patched or ragged. 


Coats: Overcoats must be dark grey or navy wool type of a length to reach below the jacket.  Short anoraks are only to be worn with smart informal or casual dress.

Scarves: Scarves must be school issue – Football (and all other scarves) are specifically forbidden with school dress or suits.

Hats: Sun hats, cricket caps, woollen hats for hill-walking or hats required for other sports or activities may be worn in the appropriate circumstances.  Otherwise hats (including baseball hats) are not allowed on the School site or in town.

Hair: At all times hair must be clean, tidy and natural in appearance.

Appearance: With School Dress and suits, shirts and blouses must be tucked in, cuffs fastened and shirt collar bottons done up.

Jewellery: With School Dress, pupils may wear one charity wristband or one modest bracelet, one modest necklace and one small pair of earrings. (NB All other body piercings are not permitted at any time.)

Salopians are expected to dress at all times with modesty and due consideration for others; at no time should they wear clothing or accessories which are extravagant, undignified or offensive in style.
