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.
