Uniform


Our students are our ambassadors in the community and beyond. As we prepare them for life after school, we expect them to wear their uniform with pride, on the way to school, in school and on the way home. By setting professional standards, they give themselves a great sense of belonging and are ready to take on a career where they will be expected to dress professionally. Please work with us to make sure your child has dressed appropriately before leaving for school.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you in anticipation of your support with our school uniform policy. If you have any queries concerning our uniform expectations, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s Form Tutor.
