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: 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.

Families who find it difficult to afford school uniform at any time should contact their year team admin (details below), in complete confidence, so that a way forward can be found:
