School 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

The P.E Uniform is there to keep you safe. Make sure you have the right Kit with you at lessons.
