  • Navy blue sweatshirt,
  • white, grey or blue shirts
  • (school tie is optional)
  • dark (grey/black) trousers or school shorts.


  • Navy blue sweatshirt, cardigan, white, grey or blue blouse/polo shirt (school tie is optional) and navy blue or grey skirt or pinafore skirt. 
  • Girls may also choose to wear navy blue or black trousers.
  • Blue check gingham dresses may be worn during the summer months.
  • All items should be plain without logos or decorations.
  • If headscarves are worn, they should be plain black, blue or white which are in keeping with uniform colours.


  • Sensible and safe footwear to be worn.
  • School ties and cloth badges are available to purchase from the School Office.
  • We recommend that children use a sun hat during hot sunny weather.
