The original colours for the School were royal blue, tan and white. The first School jumpers were royal blue (not navy) with white and tan stripes on the neckline. The School tie was blue with thin white and tan stripes. The School became unhappy with the tan colour because it was difficult to reproduce consistently, the colour varied too much on different uniform items. So it was decided to change the tan to red because it was much easier to get a consistent shade of red.The compulsory uniform for all formal occasions was a plain grey suit with no badge or crest at all. Junior boys wore a grey jacket with shorts instead of long pants. In 1961 the Foundation Students wore a blue cap with tan trim and a plain white mitre at the front, because the School crest had still not been designed. After 1961 the cap carried the coloured crest on the front panel. The cap remained part of the uniform until the late 1970s.
In 2008 short socks replaced the former long socks as part of the summer uniform. Then in 2010 the “February Shirt” was introduced in response to the warmer weather of late summer. This was a short sleeved shirt with the School crest and “The Peninsula School” embroidered above the pocket; it could be worn without a tie during February only. In 2013 the embroidered shirt became the standard shirt for both summer and winter uniform.
