For new parents (Year 6 starting in September) we have arranged some slots when you can come in and try the sample size sets we now have at the school. SWI will advise parents struggling with sizing to visit the school to try the garments on before placing orders with them. This will hopefully ensure they get the right sized garment at first time of ordering. Please see below the details regarding the weekly school delivery, this will be term time only.
Blazers: All students from Years 7 to 11 are required to wear a school blazer and students must wear them around the school at all times (if not too hot – permission will be given); other outdoor items may not be worn in school at any time.
Ties: Ties need to be worn by all students and therefore the appropriate shirt/blouse which buttons at the neck must be purchased to ensure the tie looks smart. School ties must be worn at the correct length and you will need to purchase a tie in the house colours that the student is in. Clip on ties for students who cannot wear their tie at the correct length will need to be purchased (price £4.50).
Jumpers: The school has a logo V neck jumper as part of the school kit and would advise parents / carers that our lovely Grade 2 listed building does have a range of temperatures in different areas and a jumper is an important part of the school uniform; it also makes the students look a lot smarter. No other jumpers or outdoor clothing may be worn or carried around the school.
Trousers: Girls’ trousers have been a particular concern to us as many designs and styles that are being worn are inappropriate for school. Trousers must not be ‘skinny’ in style, must have no logos, belts or buckles or sit low on the hips. If parents/ carers or students are unsure whether the trousers they have purchased are suitable, please bring them to school to be checked before cutting the labels off! Please ensure that boys trousers do not contain visible zips or studs and that they are not of the jean or chino type.
Skirts: Skirts of the appropriate style and length may be worn and can be purchased at a local retailer. Please ensure that skirts are of the right length and do not fold up when walking, we also advice against the purchase of a knitted style of skirt.
Sports Kit: Please see order form for details of sports kit required.Please note, in terms of trainers no canvas shoes or high tops are allowed.
