School Uniform

The school has a school uniform, and we ask for your co-operation in ensuring that it is worn by all pupils. Please refer to the list when purchasing new items of clothing – if any amendments are made you will be notified officially, not by pupils claiming that ‘everyone else’ is wearing the latest fashion item!

If in doubt, please contact the school before making purchases, but in all cases the items referred to are standard ‘school uniform’ style – extremes of fashion are never acceptable for school life.

All items must be clearly named please.  You can purchase uniform from the following suppliers:

Dorset Schoolwear – 01305 780700 for free delivery to school.
Dorset Printwear (DEP) – 01305 750292 for free delivery to school.
