Uniform

24th June Uniform Letter

School uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the tone and ethos of our school. It helps  to promote a sense of equality amongst our diverse community of students and the understanding of the formal nature of the environment. The wearing of uniform helps to instill pride in our school, a spirit of togetherness and an atmosphere in which successful learning can flourish.

All students must wear school uniform each day. All uniform items highlighted in bold in the list below must be bought from our supplier:
