Uniform and Equipment
Our uniform has been selected to give our students a pride in their appearance and a sense of belonging to Lutterworth College.
It reflects the College's heritage and strong belief in traditions. It has been designed to be formal, comfortable and purposeful.
All students are to wear uniform at all times while on school site unless express permission has been given not do so.
We are committed to providing a safe College site, and to support this all staff, students must wear their ID cards at all times on College lanyards. When they join us, each student will be provided with an ID card personalised with their photograph and name. ID cards will be required in order for students to print their work from the college system, and to use our cashless catering system.

We know that many parents would prefer to order online. Your child's school uniform can be purchased and will be delivered directly to your home or specified delivery address, incurring a delivery charge, or to the College free of charge. Academy School Uniforms also hold pop up shops on site throughout the year. Please keep an eye out for specific dates being advertised.

ID cards, lanyards & card holders
Lutterworth College operates a cashless payment system, and cannot accept cash for payment at any of its catering outlets.
Student ID cards double-up as a contactless payment card.
If students lose their lanyard and ID card, replacements are charged as follows:
£0.50 for the lanyard
£0.10 for the ID card holder
£2.00 for the ID card
To order a replacement ID card, students should log onto RM Unify and click ‘Order a
new ID card’. Cards will be processed in one batch at the beginning of every day and will be delivered to Student Reception for collection. At the point the order is submitted, the old card will become inactive and the student will be charged. Students that do not have sufficient credit on their accounts will be emailed. It is their responsibility to make sure they add the necessary credit either via Parent Pay or via the Finance Dept.
Students who believe their card to be faulty and wish to request a free replacement should go to the IT Support office and request a new one.
Replacement lanyards and ID Card holders can be purchased from the Library.
Students are expected to have the following equipment with them at all times:
- Black/blue pen
- Green pen
- Colouring pencils
- Scientific calculator
- PE kit on days when they have PE lessons
- Apron (for Food Technology lessons)
- Hand sanitiser
At Lutterworth College, we recognise that reading for pleasure makes a substantial difference to a student’s life. Research shows that children who read for enjoyment for at least 30 minutes a day at home not only perform better in English examinations than those who don’t, but also develop a broader vocabulary, better general knowledge, and more empathy for those around them. Indeed, regular reading has more of an impact on how well a student does in school than their social or economic background.
In your child’s English lessons, students will have a fortnightly opportunity to visit the school library, and to read for pleasure. Our librarians are experts at recommending the right books to suit our students’ appetites.
Twice weekly, Key Stage 3 students will have silent reading time with their mentors.
To that end, we ask that students always have a book in their bag to read while at school.
