Our School Uniform

We are very proud of our school uniform and we expect children to have high standards of personal appearance in and around school and during PE and sports lessons. This helps us to maintain good attitudes to learning and encourages pride in our school. You can use the photos and information on this page to guide you.

Our school clothing policy is simple and practical, and comprises royal blue sweatshirt with school badge and grey/black trousers, 'formal' shorts or school skirt. Girls may wear cotton checked summer dresses. There are also cardigans and polo shirts with the school logo available for purchase. If a logo sweatshirt, polo shirt or cardigan is not available we ask that a plain white shirt or royal blue sweatshirt is worn.

We ask that children wear school shoes and not trainers or any other kind of footwear.

We may have a minimal amount of stock available in school. (Inquire at the school office.)

We request a change of clothing for PE – in the form of a school PE t-shirt shirt, black shorts and appropriate footwear (plimsolls/trainers) – provided in a suitable bag for P.E. lessons. 

Children should not wear jewellery or wristbands apart from studs in pierced ears and watches. Any hair bands, clips or ribbons should be plain and simple.
