Important

  • Last date for ordering uniform from Just Schoolwear is 1 August for home delivery or click & collect
  • Students must have a black rucksack/backpack* for carrying books and equipment (*if your child already has a sturdy bag that is not black or a rucksack/backpack, please do not worry about this until it needs replacing)
  • Students must bring a reading book of their own choice every day
  • Students should bring a refillable water bottle (no drinks on sale)
  • Please read the Uniform Headlines for dates of Uniform Support sessions to check your child has the right attire for September.
