We understand that buying the appropriate uniform can be a challenge when faced with so many different uniform styles, changing fashions and teenage preferences! This can cause a number of issues as some students are keen to wear very short tight skirts and extremely tight, skinny, or jean-style trousers. These styles do not comply with the uniform guidelines and much staff time can be lost dealing with uniform related issues. Socks should be plain black or white and tights should be black or neutral in colour.
To make the process simpler for parents and carers, we have a ‘standard’ uniform; Needlepoint who already supply our blazers and ties, are also able to supply trousers and skirts. We expect all of our students to be wearing items of uniform which are of similar style/design/fit to those items available from Needlepoint.

In addition to our logoed blazer and our clip-on tie…..
Needlepoint are able to supply boys’ trousers, girls’ trousers (two styles) and skirts (one style, two lengths) – see images below
Footwear should be……
Well maintained, clean black shoes or ankle boots (boots may be worn with trousers only) that have a flat heel. There should be no excessive or obvious embellishments or branding or white soles. Footwear may be laced, Velcro, buckle or slip-on. Footwear material should be leather, suede or synthetic leather; no canvas or traditional “trainer” fabric and no open-toed sandals.
Our P.E. kit is available through Touchline Stores and orders can be placed online here. The majority of items, which are available in both male and female styles, can be purchased in either blue trim or red, according to whether students follow a GCSE or ‘core’ programme, with additional colour options for A level students and those on the Sports Leadership programme.
