Secondary Winter Uniform

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As we approach the colder months, it has come to our attention that some students have been wearing Celebration or Graduation jumpers/hoodies from previous years as part of their school uniform. We would like to reiterate that these items do not comply with our uniform policy. The school had previously communicated this information through school bulletins last academic year and also at the start of this academic year. However, it seems that some students, and possibly families, may still be unaware of this requirement.

Please find the link to our school’s secondary uniform below:

Secondary Uniform

Please know that all of the winter uniforms are now available from the uniform shop, including the new Secondary jacket and the Secondary padded jackets.

To support everyone to have enough time to purchase the secondary winter uniform the Uniform shop will be open on Wednesday afternoons from 1:30 pm to 4 pm from the week beginning Monday the 4th of December, in addition to the normal opening days and hours: Tuesday and Thursday 8:15 am – 12:00 pm.

To ensure that everyone has enough time to switch over to either of the Secondary jackets, we are allowing Secondary students to choose to wear either the new Secondary tops or celebration/graduation jumpers/hoodies from previous years until the end of this term.

From the start of Term 2 (8th January 2024), we kindly request your support in ensuring that your child is wearing the correct school uniform, including the new Secondary jacket or padded jacket. Celebration, Graduation and Primary jumpers/hoodies, as well as leggings etc. will not be allowed from this point. We require all students to adhere to the school’s uniform requirements in order to maintain a consistent and expected appearance. All students will be asked to remove any non-uniform items or will be sent home to change.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding in this matter. If you have any further queries or require additional assistance, please contact your child’s Head of Year.

Kind regards,

Secondary School Leadership Team
