Uniform

At The British International School of New York we believe that wearing a uniform instills a sense of pride, unity and community between all our students. In Upper, students do not have a formal uniform but instead have a dress-code.

Upper School Dress Code

To reflect the greater independence we are giving Upper students, there is not a school uniform. In place of this there is a dress code agreed with students around the expectation that student dress should be smart and appropriate for a place of study. This is based around the following suggestions:

  •  Navy or khaki trousers or mid-length skirt with a collared shirt (and tie). Jacket is optional.
  • For PE students should wear their house color polo shirt with navy shorts or sweatpants.
  • For PE Upper Students may purchase their house color polo shirt or wear their own shirt in their house color (no logo required).

 

I have attended BIS-NY for 3 years. At first, I was unsure if I would fit in, however all the kids and teachers have welcomed me with warm hearts and immediately made me feel at home. I learned so much, made so many new friends and had so many memorable moments. I have grown as a person along with my friends as I progressed through the years and I will miss BIS-NY immensely.
