The uniform of Bronte College (consisting of a grey-coloured tunic, grey-coloured pants, grey-coloured skort, grey-coloured shorts, a plain white collared long sleeve and short sleeve shirt, a navy polo shirt, a Bronte College tie, a navy cardigan, a navy V-neck sweater and vest) will help to reinforce our students’ identity in the community. In Grades 1 to 8, a Bronte College blazer is also a part of the uniform. This helps to unify the student body, instill pride in our school, lessen the financial burden on parents, and help to ensure that our students are recognized for their character and accomplishments. Also, black socks and black closed-toe shoes are part of the uniform.
All uniform items must be purchased through Bronte College, with the exception of socks/hosiery, belts and shoes. This will ensure consistency in quality, colour and appearance.
All shoes must have a non-slip and non-marking sole, and no heels are allowed.
