Our students wear their uniforms and College colours proudly, both on-campus, and when representing Investigator College in our local community.


Our Uniform

Worn daily by all students, the Investigator College uniform is designed to be distinctive, comfortable, practical and economical.

Our College uniform is an affirmation of belonging – a statement of pride and a consolidation of our identity, culture and community.

The College colours and logo are worn with pride, with each variation of our uniform serving to identify our learners not only as Investigator College students, but as leaders of the future.

Uniform Policy

In addition to the pride our students take in wearing our College colours, our uniform also serves a number of additional purposes, which become especially important when students are away from the College grounds on excursions, or when representing the College in other extra-curricular activities.

The expectations for the wearing of our College Uniform are outlined in our Uniform Policy.

Uniform Variations

Like our subject offerings and learning spaces, our uniforms are designed to be fit-for-purpose. Investigator College has four variations of uniform:

Formal Uniform

Our Formal Uniform, which is mandatory for all students, may consist of:

  • College Blazer (Year 7 – Year 12)
  • Investigator College Tie (Navy ties are worn by students in Year 3 to Year 9; Petrel Green ties are worn by students in Year to Year 12)
  • Formal Shirt (may be short or long sleeved)

Formal Uniforms are required to be worn on occasions where students are seen to be representing the College, both on campus and in the community.

Formal Uniforms may also be worn on every regular school day, if desired.
