Our insistence on smartness and pride in personal appearance is as much part of school policy as the academic curriculum. As school uniform has to last for some time, please do not buy fashion garments; only plain, simple styles are suitable. Every member of the school is expected to wear school uniform during their time with us, including school visits, unless pupils are advised otherwise.

It is hoped that all pupils will be happy and successful whilst at our school and will wear their uniform with pride. The uniform is much admired by visitors and it is encouraging to note that parents fully support our policy over school clothing.
