School Uniform

There is a school uniform, which increases the sense of belonging to the school community and adds to a general smart appearance.

The colour for sweatshirts is bottle green, with collared white shirts and grey trousers for boys and grey skirts for girls (or they may wear grey and black trousers).

A bottle green fleece is available with the school logo if required.

In the summer, the girls wear green check gingham dresses and the boys are encouraged to wear shorts.

Shoes must be black and practical for school use (no open toes or sling backs please).

In practice parents find it convenient for children to have clothes specifically appropriate for school.

School uniform is available from Sporting Classics, 27 Cheap Street, Sherborne and secondhand uniform through the school PTA.

PLEASE LABEL ALL SCHOOL UNIFORM & SHOES

The school help those families in receipt of free school meals to meet the costs of school uniform by way of a clothing grant. Upon application to the Governors, vouchers to the value of £35.00 per child are available. For full details please contact the school office.
