Uniform & Equipment List

Uniform & Equipment List
At Cowes Enterprise College we believe in establishing a culture of behaviour that supports learning.

This is reflected in our expectations of personal appearance and attitudes to learning and in terms of the standards and aspirations we have for our students.

We believe that a smart appearance helps develop a sense of pride which reflects in a more positive approach to work and behaviour.

It is students' responsibility to wear their uniform correctly to show respect for the Academy, including on the way to and from school
