We expect our pupils to take pride in their appearance and therefore pupils must be in correct uniform at all times. This consists of black trousers/jogging bottoms, a grey polo shirt, appropriate footwear for their activity/role within the school, a school sweatshirt with logo and/or a school fleece with logo. These are proudly displayed by Isabella in Year 8 and Rhys in Year 10.
We are aware that some pupils have sensitivities regarding certain materials. In an effort to support this we are happy to discuss appropriate alternatives so that the uniform does not become a barrier to learning. In addition to this the PE department request that pupils provide appropriate indoor and outdoor kit supporting a positive physical and mental wellbeing.
Prices are £9.00 for polo shirts, £13.00 for sweatshirts and £16.00 for a fleece jacket – please contact the school office for availability.
Parents and Carers also have the option of ordering additional uniform supplies directly from the supplier, A J Designs via their website.
