Uniform Expectations

Uniform examples Nov 2021

Please note that branded jumpers or sweatshirts are NOT permitted in school. Jumpers/sweatshirts should be plain and dark coloured for both girls and boys. Please do not purchase branded items or clothing with visible logos, as your child will be asked to remove these and not to continue to wear to school.

Please note that checked, tartan, or patterned skirts or pinafores are not within the school uniform code.  Skirts or pinafores should be dark coloured/black or dark grey and plain without checks/stripes or patterns of any kind.  Girls may wear school trousers, also without patterns or designs, but these should be trousers and not leggings or jeans.

Skirts and trousers worn to school should be of appropriate design, fabric and length. Shorts, PVC or leather, or skinny jeans are not appropriate school wear.

School footwear should be 

black in colour whether these are school shoes or trainers. A small amount of white or colour is acceptable, for example, a small stripe or a white sole – but the main footwear itself must be black.

School Blazers

We encourage all of our pupils to wear school blazers as they are smart, practical, and support the positive ethos of our school.

Senior pupils in S5 and S6 are required to wear blazers in school.

Pupils may keep blazers in their locker or in the S6 Study Room and wear them around school after wearing outdoor jackets to travel to school.

In order to support all of our senior pupils wearing their blazers, we offer a Blazer Hire Scheme which is widely used each year.

Pupils can hire a blazer in their preferred size, for an initial cost of £10. At the end of their S5 (or S6) year, they can return the blazer to the school and receive £5 back. The remaining £5 covers the cost of dry cleaning their blazer and any  necessary repairs. This represents very good value where our pupils can wear a blazer for 2 years at a minimal cost of £5.00.

Any pupil or family experiencing difficulty with the cost of a school blazer should speak confidentially to their Guidance teacher to see how the school can provide support.

School blazers will be provided at the end of June each year or the beginning of the new term in August each year.

Recycled Uniform

We usually hold a stock of laundered and good quality uniform items in school which can be provided discreetly to young people and families. Please contact your child’s Guidance Teacher of Year Head for further details.
