Uniform

SCHOOL UNIFORM  2017/18

We strive for the highest standards in all aspects of school life and believe that pupils should take pride in their appearance and their school.  High standards of appearance are an important part of each pupil’s sense of values and are a preparation for the world outside school.  Therefore, we have a clearly stated policy that all pupils are expected to wear full school uniform both whilst journeying to or from school and, of course, on site.  The highest standards are maintained from the moment pupils enter the School and parents are expected to support the policy with regard to uniform.
