School Uniform and Sports Kit

Following a thorough review and consultation with staff, pupils and parents, we are pleased to inform you that the School have identified new suppliers and finalised changes for our School uniform and sports kit for the Academic School year 2018/19.

These changes to uniform are not dramatic; we are mindful of maintaining quality without impacting price. We’ve listened to feedback and recognised that we need to offer a solution for busy parents to purchase uniform online, at their convenience.

We are confident that we have identified the right partners to work with us in the future. We have appointed ‘Schoolblazer Ltd’ as our new provider for all compulsory uniform items, and ‘Playerlayer’ for our sports kit. Please find below further details for each of our suppliers, both offering a bespoke online ordering experience with an easy to follow selection and ordering process. Full details of uniform requirements for different year groups are given on each purchase portal.

Please be advised these sites are now live and that new uniform and sports kit can be purchased through their respective portals.
