Our uniform gives students a shared identity and fosters a sense of pride in the Whānau, College and themselves.
The Ellesmere College uniform can be bought both online and in-store at http://ellesmere.nzuniforms.com/ and also at our PTA second-hand shop (see Ellesmere College PTA Facebook page for more info).

The current uniform is being reviewed by the Board of Trustees following a community consultation at the end of 2020/beginning of 2021. A new uniform will be phased in from the beginning of 2023 for Years 7, 9 & 11 (it is optional in 2023 for other year levels), with all Yr 7-12 students wearing the new uniform in 2024.
Please Note: Following feedback from the school community and the uniform review being completed by the Board of Trustees, the school kilt will be phased out. To make this more financially viable for parents/whānau in 2022, the kilt will be an optional uniform item. Students will only be allowed to wear black polishable schools from 2023 so next year the t-bar shoes are also optional for girls (who can wear black polishable shoes instead).
