Student Uniform

All uniforms are now provided by our new supplier Sportswear International (SWI). This has resulted in considerable savings for uniform items. From June 1st you can order uniforms directly from SWI using their online portal at www.swischoolwear.co.uk.

All school blazers can be ordered through School Gateway for a flat fee of £25 for all students or purchased at the school by cash/cheque. They will be available to collect from the school.

Following consultation with staff, students and parents we are also introducing a specially designed tie for Year 11 students. This is also available to buy through School Gateway for £6.30.

Please click here to see photos of all uniform items and here for a downloadable SWI order form.

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.
