Uniform and PE kit

The aim of the school is to have a smart and practical uniform which students are proud to wear. We believe that high standards of personal appearance indicate high standards in all other matters.

Appropriate action will be taken to ensure, that in the interest of the students, these standards are maintained.

School uniform must be worn by all students when attending school at any time, unless specified (e.g. on some school visits).

Our uniform items are produced by well-known manufacturers and can be purchased through:
