We believe that pupils should come to school smartly dressed and we expect that all our pupils will attend school wearing the clothes specified. Uniform checks take place on a daily basis, as pupils arrive and throughout the day. Any pupil wearing items that do not conform to our policy will be asked to change into spare school uniform. School reserves the right to send pupils home to address any deviation from the school dress expectations prior to returning to school.

All items bearing the school logo (tie, jumpers/cardigans and rugby/hockey shirts) are only available from our Uniform Shop here on the school site.
