Uniform

The last date for guaranteed orders before the start of the new school year 2022-23 from TOTAL CLOTHING is Wednesday 10th August.

There will be an in-school sizing event over Wednesday 24th and Thursday 25th August by ESSENTIAL SCHOOLWEAR, which will be another opportunity to purchase uniform.


We believe that wearing uniform helps to create a sense of identity and community in school. Our uniform is smart, practical and comfortable and we expect pupils to wear it with pride when at school, on journeys between home and school, and especially when representing the school on visits and fixtures.  Pupils who do not meet our expectations about uniform will usually receive a sanction.

Please note that school-branded items should be purchased from our school suppliers, Essential Schoolwear (daily wear) and Total Clothing (daily wear, PE kits and GCSE Dance/Drama uniform).

We will run second-hand uniform events when possible. If you would like to check our second-hand uniform availability, please complete the form below to submit your enquiry: Second-Hand Uniform Request. Please allow 48 hours for a response.
