Spare uniform is available in school for any pupil who needs it.


To avoid the loss of your property, it is essential that all items of equipment and uniform are labelled with the pupil's name, including surname.

We are enrolled with a company called My Name Tags, who produce name tags for children's possessions and clothing. If you buy your labels through My Name Tags, the school earns a commission.
