We have a school uniform, which is as follows:

  • Grey pinafore dress/skirt
  • Classic cut grey trousers
  • Summer dress in red/white check
  • Grey pullover/slipover/cardigan, ready-embroidered with the school logo*
  • Short sleeved red polo shirt, ready-embroidered with the school logo*
  • Grey tights
  • Grey socks (white alternative for girls)
  • Brown or black shoes (not trainers)
  • A warm outdoor coat (waterproof coats embroidered with the school logo are available)

Jewellery is not permitted at school (with the exception of stud earrings and watches, which must be removed by your child for PE lessons).
A book bag is issued to all children when they join the school.
Please ensure that every item is named so that, if lost, it can be returned to its owner! A Sharpie pen is excellent for naming clothing.
