Specifics of the Perins Girl’s Uniform
Blazer: Traditional school uniform style in black with school badge on breast pocket.
Skirt: A black, pleated skirt with the Perins badge. The skirt should at all times touch the child’s knee when they are stood upright. Please allow for growth then purchasing the skirt; our suggestion would be to buy a skirt which will give your child as much wear as possible but still conforms to the rule of touching the knee. Below is information given to us by a paediatric Growth and Endocrine Nurse Specialist.
Girls and boys grow at an average of 5-6 cm per year from about the age of 6, this continues until puberty begins. After this time and for the next two years girls will grow around 12-15 cm per year.
Trousers: Black traditional style. Cotton fabrics, combats, cords, jeans, hipsters or flared styles are not permitted. Fabrics with a high lycra content, which cling to the body, are also not permitted.
Shirt: White traditional school shirt with standard collar. Fitted fashion shirts, baggy styles or polo shirts are not permitted. Shirts must be worn tucked into trousers or skirt. Garments worn under the shirt must be light in colour without images.
Socks: Black socks.
Tights: Black, or natural.
Please note; black socks should not be worn over tights.
Shoes: Black (with laces of the same colour if applicable). They should be smart and practical for all school activities. Trainers, boots, stilettos, canvas types, flip-flops, sandals or open-toes styles are not permitted. Shoes must fit feet securely and not be worn down at the back. ‘Flip flop’ action is unacceptable.

The coat must be a plain type worn over (not instead of or under) blazers in cold weather. Denim, jumper material or hoodie style is not permitted. Any reflective material, motifs or labels on coats/bags, must be discreet and inoffensive (not sexist, racist or relating to the drugs culture in any way). Scarves and hats (of the above colours) are permitted but they are only to be worn in winter and not as a fashion garment.
