It is essential that we ensure that all students adhere to the uniform standards set by the school. We would like to remind parents/carers of our uniform standards prior to you purchasing uniform.
The school only has one uniform supplier: Kealteamwear, their shop is on Walmgate, alternatively you can purchase uniform online at Keal Uniform.
We are proud of our uniform which helps to create a purposeful atmosphere. We expect all students to wear the correct uniform at all times. We encourage students to take responsibility for ensuring they come to school dressed in a tidy and neat manner.
Hair colour and style must be appropriate and of an acceptable standard for school. Students should check with their Progress Leader if in doubt. Extreme hair colour and styles will not be permitted.
For safety reasons, students may only wear one stud earring in each ear no other jewellery may be worn and other body piercings will not be allowed. We also request that no child uses nail varnish or has false nails that are coloured and that no make up is worn.
YES PLEASE! Black Trousers or Kilt White shirt or blouse Slip over (branded) Tie (optional with kilt) Blazer (branded) Black tights or black socks Leather/leather look shoes Plain, low heeled boots with trousers (in winter only)
NO THANKS Black skirts Make up Any other jewellery (apart from one pair studs) Nail varnish Pumps, trainers or canvas shoes including VANS or other brands Boots with the kilt
