Parents are asked that children wear the school uniform, which has been chosen in consultation with parents’ representatives to be easily purchased at moderate cost. It is regularly reviewed to ensure that all items are readily obtainable and keep in touch with modern clothing practice and fashion for children. All items, with the exception of printed t-shirt and sweatshirt, can be obtained from chain stores, supermarkets, etc. The printed t-shirts and sweatshirts are available from Bartletts in Wimborne. While we want to shape pupils with the courage to be unique, it is also important that we maintain these standards to ensure fairness for all.
It is expected that parents will select from the items below appropriately depending on the weather and season.
