Uniform

We believe that wearing uniform helps to create a sense of identity, pride and community in school. Our uniform is smart, practical and comfortable. We rely on parents to ensure that pupils arrive in school in correct uniform and may implement sanctions if a pupil does not comply.

All items can be purchased from our suppliers:  Essential Schoolwear (daily wear) and SWI Schoolwear (PE kit)

To purchase GCSE Drama and/or GCSE Dance uniform please visit Total Clothing.
