Uniform

We believe that school uniform helps children to develop a sense of belonging and pride – as well as making life easier for parents. The school colours are navy blue, dark grey, black and white. Tailored school trousers are appropriate for both boys and girls. All items should be plain, without pictures, words or logos of any sort. Leggings and cycling shorts, and shoes with raised heels are not suitable for school.  Please make sure that all items in school are clearly named.

Major items of clothing are listed below and may be purchased from many local stores. Sweatshirts and polo shirts embroidered with our school name are available from Stevensons on Ber Street. Click here for further details.
