Uniform is an important part of our school. We believe it promotes a sense of identity and establishes good working habits.
An acceptance of a place at the School implies an acceptance
of our uniform and dress code. Parents and carers should be aware that students arriving in incorrect uniform, will be removed to isolation until appropriate uniform replacements have been provided.
A detailed overview of the uniform is found below:

Plain white shirt which fastens at the neck – long or short sleeved.
