School Uniform

Uniform Regulations

We firmly believe there are two important trade-marks of a successful school:

  • Tradition
  • Branding

Rightly or wrongly, our school will be judged by the appearance of our pupils, both at school and in our community.

Our school branding is also important.

Be it staff, parents or pupils, our badges, school colours, etc., need to be prominent, and where applicable, worn with pride.
