School uniform



Our school colours are black, white and yellow.  Uniform can be purchased via the school or alternatively parents/carers can buy from other retailers as long as the clothing reflects the school colour expectations.  The school PE t-shirt is the only item requiring school branding and this can be purchased from the uniform shop.  For all other items, parents/carers can purchase from retailers of their own choice.  The school has a termly “pre-loved” uniform shop where parents can also purchase uniform.
