Uniform

Gulval_131114_sb034

We strongly believe that school uniform gives our pupils a sense of identity and of belonging to the academy. It helps to ensure that no pupil feels disadvantaged in terms of appearance, removes the need to keep up with constantly changing and expensive fashion trends, and instills a sense of pride.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Is the uniform washable?
    Yes the uniform is fully machine washable at 40 degrees.
  2. Can the jacket be tumble dried?
    Unfortunately the jacket cannot be tumble dried, but once washed it dries very quickly on a hanger.
  3. I have a boy and a girl in school but the jackets are gender specific – is there one jacket that I can buy that I can pass down the family?
    At primary age there is little difference in the cut of the boy’s Saville Jacket and the girl’s Colchester jacket. If you want to pass the jacket down through the family we would advise buying the boy’s Saville jacket.
  4. Do school stock most items?
    Yes, most items are carried by the school, just contact Penny in the school office who will be happy to help you choose your uniform.
