School Uniform
We consider appearance to be of the utmost importance and therefore expect all pupils who attend the school to wear uniform in Years 7 - 11.  If pupils fail to wear the correct uniform they will be challenged, and ultimately contact will be made with parents.

Our school uniform is available to purchase from:

We are currently in the process of updating our school uniform policy to better reflect our evolving community and ethos. Please note that any information regarding the current uniform displayed on this page will not be relevant after the end of this academic year.

The new uniform policy and dress code are still under consideration and we will share the updated uniform guidelines as soon as they are confirmed. Thank you for your patience and understanding. - March 2024
