Our International School Uniform Policy

General Rule

  • Students at our international school ICS Paris are required to wear a uniform when they are at school, in the vicinity of the school, or on school outings.
  • Uniform rules apply to ALL students regardless of age.
  • In adherence to the French Government's guidelines for public middle and high schools, the display of symbols or clothing that overtly indicate a religious affiliation is not allowed.
  • All clothing must be in good condition, must fit properly, and must not reveal any undergarments.
  • Students must buy school uniforms from our official website.

We are a member of the ICS cluster within Globeducate, alongside ICS Milan, ICS London, RIS Rome, ICS Paris and ISN Nice; therefore we share a common uniform. All ICS schools are leading IB World schools in their regions.

Aims and Objectives

Our school uniform policy is based on the notion that a school uniform:

  1. Promotes a sense of pride in the school
  2. Engenders a sense of community and belonging towards the school
  3. Is practical, easy to manage/prepare for the day, and smart
  4. Identifies students with the school
  5. Makes students feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
  6. Is regarded as suitable wear for school with health and safety in mind

The role of parents

The school asks all parents who send their children to our international school in Paris to support the school uniform policy. The international school ICS Paris believes that parents have a duty to send their children to school correctly dressed and ready for the school day. Parents and guardians are responsible for ensuring that their child(ren) comply with this policy. There will be no exceptions.

The role of teachers and staff

Teachers and staff assist in enforcing the international school ICS Paris Uniform Policy. Staff and teachers retain the right to refuse students into their classrooms who do not comply with the uniform policy.

Acquiring school uniforms

The school and sports uniforms must be purchased from the international school ICS Paris supplier by the parents before the start of the school year.
