New badged school skirt

Badged school skirt

We are adopting a phased implementation of the new badged school skirt. From September 2019 Year 7 pupils will be expected to wear the uniformed badged school skirt alongside the badged blazer and tie, purchased from one of our four school uniform suppliers. Our suppliers will attend the Year 6 parent information evening on Thursday 4 July. There will be samples of our uniform available to view.

In 2019–20, Years 8 to 11 pupils may continue to wear their existing black tailored school skirt. By September 2020, the expectation will be that pupils from Years 7 to 11 will wear the new badged school skirt purchased from one of our four suppliers. Parents/carers purchasing a new school skirt for a pupil in Years 8 to 11 from September 2019, may wish to move to a badged skirt in advance of 2020.

In all aspects of appearance, the aim is personal smartness; extremes of fashion are not permitted. We ask parents and carers to support our Smart Uniform Policy.
