Uniform

Students in Year7 to 11 are expected to wear our school uniform. It is expected that students will be smartly dressed at all times.The support of parents in helping us to maintain smart appearance is one of the most important characteristics of the school.  School uniform costs no more than other outfits.  It has the advantage of being hard-wearing and very suitable for the activities in which students are involved in school.  Parents recognise the fact that school uniform reduces competition and bullying.

Uniform requirements

Items marked with an asterisk* must be purchased from the uniform supplier, Price & Buckland, the school’s official uniform supplier.  Students starting with us in September 2017 will be expected to wear uniform that displays the new logo but this will be phased in over a period of time and it is acceptable for current students to wear the previous logo until new uniform is required.
