Children need a swimming costume and towel, when they have an opportunity to swim. 

A swimming cap is required if your child has long hair.  Swimwear should be brought to school in a separate waterproof bag, sensible size please due to lack of space. Goggles can only be  worn if a signed permission slip is received. Children are advised not to take talcum powder into the changing rooms. 




We have two main uniform suppliers, Moses and Ann’s Childrenswear


Ann's Childrenswear

Each shop has a full range of stock items and fitting rooms. If anyone has any problems with sourcing the uniform please inform the school office.



Hairstyles and colouring: Parents should be aware that we do not permit extremes of fashion in students’ hairstyles. Hair colouring is not permitted. Close shaved heads, any shorter than a number 2 and patterns cut into hair are not acceptable. Very short hairstyles including extreme hairstyles (e.g. where some hair is very short and the rest isn’t) are not acceptable. Students who have shoulder length hair, or longer, may be required to tie it back for health and safety reasons and/or if it obscures the face.



Jewellery is not permitted in school.  Earrings, bracelets and necklaces must not be worn.  

If parents require their children’s ears to be pierced this MUST be done at the beginning of the summer break.  This will give the required healing time to enable the earrings to be removed before attending school. Watches can be worn but children must be able to remove their own watch for PE. (Smart watches/ watches with games or cameras are not allowed)
