Uniform

At Waterfront UTC we mirror the working world in every possible way, and this includes what we wear. All students and staff wear professional business-like attire; this includes travelling to and from the UTC. We believe students should take pride in their appearance as this conveys a positive message about their readiness to learn and their commitment to the workplace. 

Our students say this is a change from their previous school and makes a big difference to their mindset being in a professional environment.

To maintain our commitment to the Waterfront UTC ethos, we reserve the right to decide what is classed as professional business-like attire and the details above are not an exhaustive list of what is and is not deemed as appropriate uniform. Students not wearing the appropriate uniform will be asked to correct it on entering the college. Students will not return to normal lessons until the uniform is corrected.

For Health & Safety reasons:

  • Long hair must be tied back during practical sessions
  • Jewellery should consist of stud earrings only. Bangles and rings are to be avoided. A wristwatch may be worn.
    • Waterfront UTC takes no responsibility for lost/stolen/damaged jewellery
  • Make-up, if worn, should be subtle.
  • No false nails.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):

The school will provide the majority of PPE such as lab coats, high visibility jackets, safety glasses and hard hats but, for hygiene reasons, we ask that every student has their own pair of safety shoes/boots. All borrowed equipment will be appropriately sanitised after use.

PE Kit:

Students MUST wear appropriate and comfortable leisure wear: tracksuits, shorts, t-shirts etc and trainers.

Waterfront UTC polo tops can be purchased direct from the UTC for PE. (optional)
