Our Uniform

What to Wear:

The school colours are navy and light blue. Neatness in dress is desirable in school, actively helping with commitment and discipline, and adds to the standing and reputation of the school when pupils are making visits and journeys.

Wearing with Pride

From the basic Jumper with our logo to House colours - feel proud and wear all the uniform with pride.

Hygiene is a must!

Uniform is there for a reason. GCSE Catering students wear uniform for protection and hygiene reasons. They also look part of a professional team.

Playing Safe

Moving in Style
