MBC Uniform

The school encourages pride in appearance and personal grooming. Correct school uniform is to be worn at all times while students are travelling to and from school and during the school day. Hair is to be kept clean and tidy. No extreme hairstyles will be acceptable. Students are to be clean-shaven. No visible jewellery, except one small ear stud may be worn.

The wearing of the regulation uniform is compulsory and a condition of enrolment. The Marlborough Boys’ College PTA Shop stocks the full uniform requirements. All articles of clothing, including footwear, must be clearly named. College authorities expect the co-operation of parents and guardians in seeing that the uniform is worn correctly, and that boys of the College conform at all times to a standard of dress and grooming that will bring credit to themselves, and to the College.

The Marlborough Boys’ College PTA  Shop is located in the main school block on Stephenson Street opposite Cubitt Street.
