Uniform and Equipment

All pupils in Years 7 to 11 are expected to wear full school uniform.  Our aim is set the standard of dress and appearance that creates the correct image for work and for the school community.  The initial cost of uniform is offset by the fact that it is worn regularly, which eliminates the expense of pupils being the most fashionably dressed.

Uniform items are available from http://www.kidsschoolkits.com/ Please click here to visit the online uniform shop
