School Uniform Guidelines Apr 2022
School PE Uniform Guidelines
Benefits of a school uniform are:
  • The differences between pupils are reduced, which in turn reduces some of the causes of isolation and bullying
  • Self esteem of particular groups of pupils may be improved
  • Security is improved - it's easy to spot who does and does not belong to the school community
  • Pupils feel a stronger sense of belonging and commitment to the school
  • It improves the image of the school in the local community
  • It creates sense of purpose within the school environment
Our uniform supplier is Stevensons:

The only branded uniform required from Stevensons is the school blazer.

Other suitable non-branded uniform can be sourced from retail outlets and second-hand from the PTA or year team.

Hair and head coverings

The Halo Code

We are proud to be a school that adopts and supports the Halo code. We are really happy to support any student who wishes to come to school with a hairstyle that is suitable and appropriate for school as part of their expression of identity. Extreme hairstyles or hairstyles that are unsafe, remain inappropriate for school (for example, long hair that is not tied up for a practical lesson, or an offensive word shaved into hair). Students who choose to wear a head covering, are to wear one that is black, grey, or burgundy, as per the school uniform.
