Appearance and Standard of Dress

Students are expected to wear the correct uniform at Queen’s High School.  Students are also expected to keep themselves and their clothing clean and tidy, and to present a good image of themselves to the community. Students who do not meet our standards of dress and appearance may be withdrawn from normal classes until the matter is resolved.


Hair must be a natural colour and tied back with a plain band, behind the shoulders at all times.


Polyprops or similar tops worn under a student’s shirt must not be visible.


Taonga are permitted. No other jewellery is permitted except for a named watch, one ring and two small studs/sleepers in each lower ear lobe or outer ear.  Items of jewellery are not to be obtrusive or obvious.

No facial piercings are permitted.


Makeup, artificial cosmetic enhancements or nail polish are not permitted.

The school reserves the right to determine whether a student's general appearance is not in compliance with the school uniform and dress codes.


Only traditional tattoos with cultural significance are permitted to be visible.

Cell phones

For students in Years 9 to 11, cell phones must be kept at home.  If students require their cell phone for use either before or after school it must be handed in to the school office for safe keeping prior to the start of the day bell, where it can be collected at the end of the school day. Smart watches are considered an extension of a smart phone, thus the same rule applies.

For students in Year 12 and 13, they will be required to have their cell phone off and in their bag during the school day.


Queen's has a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) to school programme where all students are able to bring a device as long as it is compliant with the minimum screen size requirement of 9.7”.   We require all new Year 9 students to have a device that is internet ready with a keyboard, such as a Chromebook.

Students are required to sign a contract agreeing to abide by  the rules and regulations around the use of electronic devices and network access.
