The Board of Trustees requires the Avonside students to be in full regulation uniform. We encourage girls to take a pride in their appearance and ask that parents support the school in seeing that their daughter maintains a neat, clean standard of dress. Only the stated uniform is permitted.
A new uniform is being phased in from the start of 2019.
The new uniform is compulsory for all Year 9 students in 2019. Students in Years 10 to 13 may choose to wear the new uniform. A mixture of both uniforms is not permitted. The school will transition from the old uniform to the new uniform gradually over four years. In 2023 all students will wear the new uniform.
Uniform items (for the new uniform) will be available from the on-site uniform shop from Term 4, 2018
