It is essential that we ensure that all students adhere to the uniform standards set by the school. We would like to remind parents/carers of our uniform standards prior to you purchasing uniform.
The school only has one uniform supplier: Keal Teamwear, their shop is on Walmgate, alternatively you can purchase uniform online at Keal Uniform.
Families of students who will be joining us in Year 7 from September and who currently receive free school meals are eligible for a contribution of £100 towards purchasing uniform from Keal Teamwear.
We are proud of our uniform which helps to create a purposeful atmosphere. We expect all students to wear the correct uniform at all times. We encourage students to take responsibility for ensuring they come to school dressed in a tidy and neat manner.
Hair colour and style must be appropriate and of an acceptable standard for school. Students should check with their Progress Leader if in doubt. Extreme hair colour and styles will not be permitted.
For safety reasons, students may only wear one stud earring in each ear no other jewellery may be worn and other body piercings will not be allowed. We also request that no child uses nail varnish or has false nails that are coloured and that no make up is worn.
