When in Year 9, girls have the option of continuing with the fleece, or replacing it with a MHS hooded sweatshirt. Girls will require trainers. We recommend girls have astro trainers. Girls can choose either white sport socks or Middlewich High School games socks. As from September 2016 the year 7 pupils must wear the new green striped MHS games sock NOT the plain navy/white games sock.

Tracksuit bottoms are an optional extra, for use in lessons. They can be bought from school supplier for use from October half term to Easter only. They do not replace skorts or shorts. Tracksuit bottoms bought from school are the only tracksuit bottoms permitted.
- All jewellery must be removed for PE lessons and sporting events.
We are introducing a new system to monitor uniform and equipment which will allow us to simply and efficiently sanction those students who persistently come to school unprepared.
The system involves a series of cards which must be carried by all students at all times. Staff can request the card at any time and will record any uniform or equipment misdemeanour. There are three types of cards:
Green Card - Every student is given a new green card at the beginning of each term they will write their name on the back and the term clearly marked ie. Spring Term 1.
Every time the student is spotted with incorrect uniform, or arrives at a lesson without the correct equipment, the member of staff will sign the card.
When the card is full and has been signed 5 times the card is kept by the staff member who signed it last and a new Orange card is issued. A completed Green card will result in a 30 minute after school detention the following day.
Orange Card - This has only 3 chances of being signed – when full as above, this progresses to a Leadership Group Detention on Thursday night. A Red card is then issued.
Red Card - This has only has 2 spaces for signing. Once completed a 90 minute Senior Leadership Detention is issued. A new Red card will then be given out. Further completed cards will result in isolation.
Any student found without a card will automatically get a detention and will be issued with the next colour card.
Students that have a blank green card at the end of a term are rewarded with 50 credits towards the Reward Trip.
