School Uniform and Equipment

We expect all of our pupils to be smartly dressed at all times and feel our school uniform is a good way to show that you belong to our community. It is important because it sets a standard and shows you are proud to be part of our school.

Our school uniform is very simple:


Shoes - Plain black, flat shoes. Plain black trainers are acceptable if they have black soles and no markings.

Socks - Plain black or white. Black or natural tights may be worn if preferred.

Trousers/Skirt - Plain black in a suitably smart style. No jeans or denim. Skirts MUST be knee-length and acceptable to the school. Tight lycra 'tube' skirts are not acceptable

Shirt/Sweater - A white, short-sleeved polo shirt with school badge. A black sweatshirt with school badge, a black v-necked jumper with school badge or a black waist-length cardigan with school badge.

Top Coat - Dark plain, black fleeces, fleece lined and waterproof jackets with the school badge are available. Hoody tops are not allowed. All top coats must be removed in classrooms. Hats, caps and beanies are not to be worn inside the school building.
