The school attaches great importance to appropriate dress. It helps to establish a feeling of community and to develop the personal presentation skills of students. Uniform is, therefore, not an option; it is a necessity. We expect all students to wear the uniform with pride when in school or when attending school functions.
More information about our school uniform, including supplier and ordering details, are available in the video and information below.
If you have concerns about accessing the necessary uniform and stationery, please click here for further details of how you can access pre-owned uniform.
It is important that you familiarise yourself with all the information available on this page.
