Wearing school uniform contributes to a positive school ethos and helps avoid discrimination and reduces peer pressure to wear expensive designer clothing. A school’s reputation can also be enhanced in the local community by the wearing of school uniform and school security will be improved as it will be easier to identify intruders.
The appropriate clothing and footwear for PE is a T-shirt, shorts and gym shoes with non-marking soles. These are necessary for health and safety reasons and your cooperation is requested to ensure that pupils are equipped to participate in the PE lessons.
Parents are asked to co-operate with the school in encouraging the wearing of school uniform.
The school uniform is as follows:
White shirt and school tie or white polo shirt with school badge
Navy or bottle green sweatshirt or jumper with school badge
School trousers, skirt or pinafore in navy, grey or green
Reversible waterproof jackets with school badge
House t-shirt for PE
Navy or black shorts for PE
Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly labelled, particularly ties, sweatshirts and water bottles which are often lost.
We have two uniform suppliers, and you can order from both of them online:
Please get in touch with the school office if you have any questions about school uniform.
