Uniform

Outsiders often judge a school by the appearance and conduct of its students in public. The reputation gained by the school as a whole is of importance and value to the individual student during school life. It also presents to the community an example of a well-ordered society and encourages students to identify with and take pride in their contribution to the school. Perhaps more importantly than this, uniform is a great leveller. All students start school on an equal basis and there is no opportunity to compete or impress with designer wear. We are all well aware that keeping up with the latest trends causes both emotional and financial problems for students and parents. Consequently, all children are admitted to the school on the clear understanding that parents fully accept and comply with the rules concerning the uniform requirements.
