Student Uniform

Notification of Change in Uniform Supplier

We are pleased to announce that with effect from the 1st June 2016, we will be changing our uniform supplier to Sportswear International www.swi.co.uk. Moving to an online supplier has meant that we have managed to negotiate some considerable savings on the price of our uniform items. More details will follow shortly, including details of a new tie exclusively designed for our year 11 students.

A high standard of personal appearance is expected of all students. If a student is not in full school uniform alternative clothing will be provided, or students will be sent to the Reintegration Room or home to change. We expect parents to support us on all issues regarding uniform.
