In response to student feedback, using the changing rooms will not be compulsory before PE. This means there are now 2 distinct uniforms:

  • Sports uniform
  • Academic uniform 

Students can choose to come in either the academic uniform, or the sports uniform. Students can choose which they come in on any day; it is allowed to wear the sports uniform on days without PE if they prefer.

Blazers must be worn at all times with both the sports and academic uniforms.
Students must wear black shoes or trainers during the school day but can change into any trainers for PE lessons.

Students must also bring dry uniform to change into after PE, in case they get wet or muddy. 

Uniform Guidelines 2024

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.
