School uniform is compulsory, and we expect all students to attend school dressed smartly in correct uniform at all times.
First impressions do count and by continually reinforcing our standards of uniform and appearance we aim to prepare our students for the world of work. Furthermore, this sets the foundation for high standards in other aspects of school life, including a positive work ethic and conduct in and around school.
We recognise that, for families, purchasing uniform and ensuring a child arrives to school dressed appropriately can be a stressful time. To ensure clarity, the school has created a uniform guide designed to support families, and students, with the process by outlining our expectations which, in turn, will help everyone understand our expectations.
Our intention is to ensure that students look smart but not at the undue expense of families. We have ensured as a school that the cost of our uniform is affordable yet of the highest quality. All official items (blazer, jumper, tie and sports kit) are only available at our uniform supplier, YC Sports and School Wear: www.ycschoolwear.co.uk. However, all other items can be purchased from any clothing store or supermarket. We do not expect every item to be purchased from a single supplier.
We ask that all items of school uniform and sports kit are clearly marked with the student’s name for ease of identification.
