Uniform and Equipment List
August 2021 – uniform update
Uniform is an important part of a school’s identity. It reinforces who we are as a community and helps allow students to feel pride in their school. It also ensures students are not put under any pressure because of the type of clothes they wear, and all are treated equally. It also helps prepare students for life after school where many will have to dress smartly for work.
We believe that our uniform is to be worn with pride and consequently we have high expectations. There is no room for personal interpretation as the list of acceptable items is clear.
We will be enforcing our uniform standards when we return in September. All students must wear the full and correct uniform for school, school occasions and PE lessons. We will check the uniform of all students on the gate and at tutor time. Students who come to school dressed incorrectly may, if there is no adequate reason, be sent home to change or parents contacted to bring in the correct items. In addition, all items of uniform, especially blazers and coats should be labelled with the student’s name.
It will remain the case for the first half of the term that students will attend school in their kit if they have a PE lesson that day. Full details on the kit are also on the website and expectations remain the same as for all other aspects of our uniform.

Size Guide and Exchanges
Please use the measuring guide below to identify the best fit of uniform for your child when placing the order.
Should your uniform item arrive and be incorrect in size, we will offer an exchange within 14 days of you receiving your uniform items, provided the items are returned in a good condition with all labels attached.
- Height – This is best done barefoot, with feet together flat on the ground and back against a wall; measure from the top of the head to the ground.
- Neck – Place the tape measure where the shirt collar would normally sit around the base of the neck. Leaving a little extra room is very important so that the collar is comfortable, so make sure not to pull too tightly.
- Chest – Take the tape measure through the underarms, around the fullest part of the chest.
- Waist – Measure around the natural waistline, not pulling too tightly to ensure comfort.
- Hips – Standing straight with the heels together, take the tape measure around the fullest part of the bottom.
- Inside leg – This time shoes on; measure from the inside leg to where the trouser is normally worn on the shoe. If you’re unsure, trousers should sit approximately 5cm from the ground.
