Our school uniform reflects the high standards we strive for everyday as a school. It is smart and helps unifies us. We are keen to ensure that school uniform is worn correctly and with pride. As a school with a uniform, there is a clear expectation that all students should strictly adhere to the school uniform policy. Please see details below of our current uniform policy.

As always, we thank you for your support.

The school reserve the right to decide on the suitability of any item of clothing.

Uniform items are available from Uniform Direct, online or through the retail outlet in Leicester city centre.
