School Uniforms

BISAK expects our pupils to take pride in wearing their uniforms as it creates identity for our school and a sense of belonging amongst our pupils.

The Uniform Shop is open every Monday-Wednesday from 7:30am to 9:00am.

Uniform Shop during Ramadan is via appointment only. Kindly email [email protected].

Preparatory School

All Prep pupils in BISAK are expected to wear a full school uniform. Shoes/trainers should have Velcro fastenings.  Pupils who are too young to tie their shoelaces independently should come to school with shoes with Velcro fasteners. No sandals or open-toed shoes should be worn.

Watches may be worn (except Smart watches), and girls may wear single studs. Other items of jewellery are not allowed. Girls wearing studs will have them taped onto their ears for PE events, as staff are not permitted to remove pupils’ ear-studs. Hair longer than shoulder length should be tied up.  All hair accessories should be black or navy in colour.

All pupils must wear a school sun hat when outside during breaks. The school hat is available from the Uniform Shop. If a pupil fails to wear their hat outside while in the sun, they will be asked to sit/stand in the shade and may lose break-time privileges.

Senior School and Sixth form

Pupils should follow the uniform code that includes sensible footwear, no jewellery except a standard watch, no make-up, and no nail polish.

To feel good, a student needs to look good. At BISAK Sixth form we like our students to look professional. Business attire is the look, and we encourage any and all work experience that students wish to partake in.
