Our school uniform has been designed to be smart, comfortable and hard-wearing. There is a distinct summer and winter uniform, and pupils wear the one or the other, depending on the season, with some discretion allowed in spring and autumn. All uniform items (except for skirts, shoes and tights) are available from the school uniform shop. There is a small range of second hand clothing for sale - proceeds of these sales go towards the Benevolent Fund.

Please ensure that your children have sports kit for their Physical Education lessons twice a week.

Pre-schoolers may wear Phys Ed kit every day (Crew neck tee-shirts, PT shorts/tracksuit pants, plain white takkies). In winter, pre-schoolers wear a plain white long-sleeved top, instead of shirt and tie.

Hairstyles

  • Attitudes towards hair styles are often arbitrary and culture bound which results in differing opinions on what is acceptable. The school seeks to cultivate modesty, ie. presenting oneself attractively, appropriately and without calling attention to oneself or making a fashion statement. To be modest is an attitude of the heart, not just outward appearance. Therefore we refrain from precise rules about hair length etc, but teachers will contact parents to request their co-operation if their child's hairstyle is a source of distraction or is not helpful in maintaining a "self-forgetful" attitude.
  • Generally, styles should be neat, conservative and easy to maintain
  • Hair should be its natural colour
  • Boys' hair is best cut short, without fades or razor-cut patterns
  • Girls may wear braids but discretion is advised. Natural hair, braided close to the scalp, is preferred. If hair extensions are used they should be the same colour as the girl's natural hair.
  • If in doubt, first check with your child’s teacher before paying for a costly hairstyle which may have to be changed
  • Hair bands and accessories are to be kept to a minimum and be plain navy in colour
  • If beads are added to braids, they should be navy in colour
