Services & Other

Great care and thought has been put into the design of the Epsom College uniform. Created to be worn comfortably in Malaysia’s climate, the uniform is both practical and pleasing to the eye. Pupils are required to wear it smartly and properly at all times for a shared sense of pride, camaraderie and responsibility.

Email store@epsomcollege.edu.my for a detailed uniform list and supplier information from our College Store.

Items marked with an asterisk (*) in the lists below can only be purchased at the ECiM store. All items of clothing and personal property must be clearly marked with the pupil's name and House or class initial(s).​

Prep School

School uniform is compulsory attire for all students attending the school. It has been designed with the needs and comfort of children as they grow. Uniforms can be purchased from the College Store located within our main Reception area. 

Students are expected to arrive at school everyday in clean clothes, worn in a tidy manner. Hair should be neat, with long hair tied back off the face and neck. Temporary or permanent hair dyes and tints are not permitted. Nail polish should not be worn and nails should be short for school. Earrings should be plain studs, if worn at all. 

MESSY ACTIVITIES AND UNIFORM
Children will be provided with aprons/overalls for messy activities at school to minimise marks on their uniform. However, marks and stains will appear during the course of our busy, active days and we ask that parents are understanding and so allow their child to fully experience the dynamic curriculum, rather than become anxious about cleanliness. We recommend that the dirty uniform item is soaked in hot water and detergent overnight and then washed as normal. 

BORROWED UNIFORM
If a child has had an accident or mishap at school which damages, wets or stains their clothing, they will typically be lent a set of clean uniform to wear for the rest of the day. The dirty uniform will come home in a bag. Please return the borrowed uniform within 3 days, washed and ironed. 

Below is the set uniform for each year group. Official uniforms can only be purchased from the College Store. Other items marked with an * (such as footwear, socks, water bottles) can be purchased elsewhere, but subject to the guidelines set out below.
