School Uniform & PE Kit

School uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of the school and sets an appropriate tone. It instils pride, supports positive behaviour and discipline and encourages identity with the school. Uniform can also be useful to protect children from social pressures to dress in a particular way.

It is school policy that all students must wear school uniform in Years 7 to 11. Please ensure you follow the school uniform guidelines below:
