All students should have a school bag with them each day to carry their equipment around the site. 

(Please note that in extreme cases, we are able to offer some financial assistance to families who are struggling to cover the cost of purchasing our uniform. Please feel free to discuss this with either our Primary school liaison team, or with our staff during the Year 6 Induction Day or Year 6 Parents' Information Evening).


Failure to wear school uniform

By signing our Home School Agreement, you are agreeing to ensure that your child wears our full school uniform every day for school.
We are able to offer a limited number of ties, blazers and jumpers to lend students for the day if they forget any items. However, students who wear persistently poor uniform will either be sent home to change, and parents informed or will be issued a sanction in line with our behaviour policy.
