Formby is a school that firmly believes in the value and importance of school uniform. We assume that parents wishing to admit their son or daughter to the school will accept this and ensure that they attend each day in the correct clothing.
Hairstyles for boys and girls should be neat, tidy and conventional. As views may vary on the definition of ‘neat, tidy and conventional’, the final decision as to whether a particular hairstyle is within the spirit of the uniform requirements always remains with the Climate for Learning Leaders and the Senior Leadership Team.
It is essential that all items of uniform and P.E. kit are labelled so that they can be easily returned if handed in to lost property.

New PE Kit
For September 2022, we are introducing a new PE kit for our new Year 7 students. Students in older year groups will have one school year to transition to the new kit, sooner if they so wish.
The rationale for introducing the new PE kit is to offer parents a more streamlined, gender neutral and affordable selection of items, whilst retaining the high quality and smart FHS identity. All upper body items (hoodie, polo and zip top) of the new kit will feature FHS branding, whereas all skorts, shorts, leggings and socks will be generic black. When purchasing shorts, please be mindful that they should be suitable for playing a wide range of sports – they should not be fashion shorts (for example, denim or cycling shorts).
Pre-loved Uniform Available
If you have any concerns about affordability of uniform or PE kit, please do not hesitate to contact the school as we hold a supply of pre-loved uniforms and PE kit.
Where to Buy FHS Uniform and PE Kit
We are pleased to confirm that Formby High School has two suppliers of branded uniform items in the local area (see below). Non-branded, ‘generic’ items can be purchased at these stores or your retailer of choice.
