We love our smart uniform, and we work with our supplier, Stevensons, to review the quality of the clothing, considering both comfort and function for the children and value for money for parents. As a result, the following will change over the next academic year.
Blazers won’t be part of our school uniform for pre-prep as we feel they are unnecessary for this age group. Children joining Reception in September 2022 won’t need a blazer and they will be phased out for children currently in pre-prep – if your child outgrows their blazer, you won’t have to replace it.
Blazers will continue to be compulsory for children in Years 3 – 6.
Purple knitwear will be replaced by a grey jumper and cardigan with a purple trim and include a sleeveless jumper (tank top) option, all at a lower cost than current items.
These are available now and can be worn from this term. All children will be expected to wear grey knitwear only from September 2023.
Children pull on elasticated ties and they break or look scruffy. Instead, all boys will wear a regular tie and we appreciate you helping your child with learning this skill at home whilst we also support them in school.
A longer tie has been introduced as an option for older boys. Ties, when tied, should be long enough to reach the waist band and be tucked in.
Following parent feedback on the quality and price of summer dresses, a fresh style will be available from Summer 2023.
The pre-prep tunic will change slightly, to include shoulder buttons and a zip to make dressing easier. These will be available from September 2022 and children can still wear the old style until Summer term 2023.
Swimming Caps/Water Bottles
These will only be available to order from us at school via ParentMail.
Nursery and Pre-prep Tracksuit
Stevensons have sourced a new supplier of higher quality joggers and sweatshirts. Please remember that Nursery children should wear only black or white trainers (or black school shoes).
Thank you for helping the children look smart in the correct uniform. You can find a full uniform list on the Stevenson’s website and if you have any questions, you are welcome to contact the School Office.
