Secondary Uniform, Essential Equipment and General Information
In response to feedback from parents about our school uniform, we are now able to confirm our uniform arrangements to start in September 2023. In order to provide some choice and to keep costs as low as possible, Monkhouse will continue to be our main supplier, but parents will now also be able to purchase alternatives, for some parts of the uniform, in other local stores and sew our embroidered logo onto them. Due to the unique colour of our polo shirts, sweatshirts and sports tops, it is currently not possible to purchase these items anywhere except at Monkhouse.
We have made the decision that from September 2024, we will adopt one colour of polo shirt, which is the dark teal in colour. Previously, this has been a KS4 uniform colour; however, we have made the decision to reduce the cost of items by having one colour for all students to wear. However, we will allow students to wear preloved or second hand light Teal (Cirrus) coloured photo shirts for the 2023/2024 academic year, whilst it is being phased out.
School uniform can be purchased from Monkhouse Schoolwear Specialists either in their shop in Stoke Gifford or online:
