Students in Uniform

Our full Uniform Policy can be found on our Policies webpage.

Second-hand uniform is available, please contact the school for details.

of school uniform for sizing purposes. Trained assistants in the John Lewis branches are also able to assist parents with online ordering at in-store ordering booths.
