School Uniforms


Our school uniform colour is a combination of red and grey/black. Most items can be bought from High Street shops.

  • Jumpers / cardigans - red. These can be plain or have the school logo embroidered on which can be ordered from My Clothing.
  • Polo shirts - red or white.
  • Trousers / skirts / shorts—plain black or grey. (shorts must be smart and tailored and of a suitable length - no lyrca sports shorts).
  • Shoes/sandals - plain black or white, pumps are fine.
  • Summer Dresses - red and white check.


All school uniform MUST be named.


Shoes should be flat and appropriate for school. If trainers are worn these should be plain (and preferably black) and without logos. Your child should wear shoes which he or she can manage to do up independently. Please do not send your child to school in shoes which prevent them from running in the playground. If boots are worn these also should be plain and with a flat heel. Nursery children do not need to wear uniform but please make sure they wear clothes that you don’t mind them getting messy!


P.E and Games Kit

Children need a change of clothes and footwear for P.E and a bag in which to keep the kit at school. Kits should be brought to school on a Monday and taken home on a Friday to be washed.

  • Plain tracksuit
  • Plain white t shirt
  • Outdoor trainers
  • Plain shorts (Summer term)


For health and safety reasons children are not permitted to wear any jewellery, including earrings, for P.E. Your child’s teacher will advise you when P.E lessons take place so that earrings can be removed or taped over. Tape or plasters should be provided from home.
