Uniform changes from September 2022

Dear Parents and Carers,

You might have noticed that in our 90th year, we have made a few small alterations to the school crest. Much of this has been to bring it closer to its original design, but with an eye to the future.

Subsequently, we have changed some of the signage around the school site and letterheads. The next stage of this will see planned changes to the uniform and PE kit for years 7 to 11 from September 2022. These changes will be made to ensure our uniform remains affordable, keeps branded items to a minimum and is of good quality meaning it will last for several years.

We will also seek to maintain a stock of pre-loved items as this is often the most cost-effective method of keeping a large family, some of whom outgrow clothes at a ridiculously fast rate in uniform.

We will publish full details and the consult with parents regarding some items of the uniform in the spring term, but in the meantime, we can share some important points:

  • Uniform changes: New blazer design; new house ties; consultation for new Year 7 students to wear charcoal trousers
  • PE kit changes: TBA but potentially moving to an online provider
  1. For current students in years 7 to 11

Our usual uniform suppliers still have stocks of our current uniform and will continue to sell this until the new uniform is in stock/the old stock runs out. You do not have to purchase the new uniform, but if you do need a new blazer for next year, you would buy the new version (only a slight change from the current design).

This will be the same for the PE kit, details of which will be shared in the new year.

  1. For new Year 7 students from September 2022

All new students will purchase the new uniform and PE kit ready for September.
