School Uniform

All pupils are expected to wear full school uniform and details are given below.  Where the Y Pant logo is required on the uniform, these items can only be purchased from the uniform shop.

Pupils will sometimes try to effect changes themselves so be suspicious of such phrases as: “Oh! They don’t mind if …” “Yes, it’s quite all right to wear …” “Everybody wears it …”

Limits have been set within which there is some freedom of choice. However, no extension of these limits will be accepted.

Please be aware that some stores will label items as school-wear which do not meet our standard.

IF IN DOUBT, RING THE SCHOOL.

  1. Hi. Could someone please enlighten me as to why my question (sent last week) re. the wearing of school jumpers at all times appears to have been removed from the site?

    1. Comments are moderated before being published for safeguarding purposes. Moderation is not done daily. If you have a specific query regarding your child then you should address that to the Head of Progress for that year group.

  2. I attended the school uniform shop in July to pick up uniform for my son who start in Y Pant in September. I asked for royal blue V neck jumpers for wearing in classroom over the blue polo shirt. I was advised that the v neck jumper is a girls item and that the boys wear the fleece on top of their polo shirt in classroom instead.

    Reviewing the website it indicates that the fleece is an outer garment only. Have I been advised incorrectly? Do I need to exchange the fleeces for v neck jumpers?

    1. The fleeces are coats only. The hoodies are also outerwear only. We have v-neck sweatshirts and knit jumpers – both are part of the uniform and for wearing over the polo shirts. It’s personal preference which is worn. I thought the knit jumpers also came in a boys fit but you’ll have to check with the uniform shop about that.
