School Uniform

We have high expectations regarding school uniform. It helps to promote equality amongst our pupils and set a positive climate for learning.   
Please can we highlight the following points ... Only plain black tights and socks (not ankle/trainer socks) will be allowed, and footwear will be ‘proper’ shoes. The images below will hopefully clarify clearly our expectations, but if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
You will notice that some footwear, popular in school in the past, are no longer accepted. For clarity - footwear such as Nike Air Force 1 and Adidas Gazelle are not permitted, even if they are all black. This is due to the fact that they are clearly trainers and have obvious sports logos on the side. 
The vast majority of our pupils are always dressed smartly for school and always wear uniform which will meet our clear requirements. Please bear these changes in mind when you are renewing items over the summer months.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any difficulties providing your child with suitable school uniform. We are always happy to help where we can.
Kind regards
Richard Oades
