We do have limited number of sweatshirts and jumpers available to buy through school, these will be sold on a first come first served basis. We also hold a small stock of large and extra large sweatshirts for pupils who need something bigger than age 15/16.
It is important that we have the cooperation of parents and carers to ensure that uniform is worn every day for school and is clean, tidy, in a good state of repair. Like all other secondary schools we strictly enforce the uniform and if your child arrives for school not wearing uniform we will be contacting you to bring uniform to the school or to take your child home to change. It is also important for pupils to bring PE kit into school on the days when PE is scheduled.
All items of uniform and other property should be clearly marked, either by sewing in name labels or writing your child’s name on a label inside the item. Embroidered name labels are available from many suppliers including Woven Labels UK, September House, Wooden, Saundersfoot, Pembrokeshire, SA69 9DY (telephone 08470 748 6774) at £2.50 for 36 labels or £3.99 for 72. Their web address is www.wovenlabelsuk.com Each term we end up with large amounts of lost property, including sweatshirts, tee shirts and coats, please make sure we are able to return clothing and other items to the correct pupil by clearly labelling everything your child bring into school.
