School uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of a school and setting an appropriate tone. Most schools in England have a school uniform and we believe that our uniform instils pride; supports positive behaviour and discipline; encourages identity with, and support for school ethos; ensures pupils of all races and backgrounds feel welcome; protects children from social pressures to dress in a particular way; and nurtures cohesion and promoting good relations between different groups of pupils. Above all, we believe that school uniform supports effective teaching and learning. Uniform can be purchased in two different ways:-
