School Uniform

 

Every pupil in Years 7 to 13 is expected to wear the correct school uniform.  Having a school uniform contributes to the tone of the school and good order.

All pupils need a school bag large enough to carry an A4 book or folder.

Younger children can be careless with their property.  You are strongly advised to mark your child’s property clearly with his/her name. In the event of a pupil losing an item of clothing and/or equipment, he/she should enquire at reception.
