Uniform is an important aspect of our school life and we know that our pupils are very proud of it when they represent the school outside.
The uniform comprises navy blue sweatshirt/cardigan and grey polo shirt (both with school logo) to be worn with dark grey/black skirt/trousers and black shoes. Blue T-shirts (also with school logo) are available as an optional part of the PE school uniform.
School uniform is compulsory for all years; however, Post 16 pupils can purchase green fleece-type hoodies which are monogrammed with their initials as an addition to the regular uniform. These garments are optional.
All pupils are required to being their own swimming and PE kit to school together with a towel, as showering is an integral part of the PE activities.
We advise that pupils not wear jewellery of any sort as this may cause health and safety risks to the individual and other pupils.
Items of school uniform can be ordered online at Designs and Signs
