Our new 2021 uniform was developed as a Schools Council project to raise aspirations for our pupils. It is accepted that not all pupils will be able to wear all of the suggestions for school uniform, so we understand that adaptions may be required that work for the individual needs of your child/ young person. There is no mandatory expectation for our students to wear the uniform outlined on this page. Our uniform does not require to be branded with the school logo and please feel free to buy plain coloured sweatshirts and white polo shirts from high street stores and supermarkets.
We fully understand that some of our students will feel happier wearing comfortable clothing such as jogging bottoms and sweatshirts or an adapted version of the uniform. The uniform outlined on this page is purely for guidance and aspirational purposes.
