In writing our school uniform code, we have worked to ensure that our school uniform is both inexpensive, obtainable and above all that it is practical.


The Department for Children, Schools & Families strongly encourages all schools to have a uniform.  It can instill pride; support positive behaviour and discipline; encourage identity with, and support for, school ethos; ensure pupils of all races and backgrounds feel welcome; protect children from social pressures to dress in a particular was; and nurture cohesion and promote good relations between different groups of pupils.  Above all, many schools believe that school uniform supports effective teaching and learning.


Please Note:

Uniform is purchased on line through .  Place your order as early as possible


No jewellery to be worn, this includes earrings at any time) the exception to this is studs or sleepers. Can be worn providing the child can take them out as needed)

Make up should not be worn in school including nail varnish.
