Uniform & PE Kit

School uniform is worn by all students and the standard of uniform is high. The wearing of uniform in school ensures that all students are neat and business like in appearance, which in turn affects their attitude to school and to their studies.

Items of school uniform marked ** must be purchased from Bristows Club & School (Bridgnorth) or SR Embroidery (Broseley) and new PE Kits should be purchased from Baker & Sons (Wellington). Some items can be purchased elsewhere, but they must comply with the specified uniform requirements

Our PE kits have been modified, with a phased transition from the old kit by September 2023. If you would like to purchase the new uniform garments to ensure your child is prepared for PE lessons, then they can be purchased from Baker & Son stores now through their website or by attending Baker & Son School wear, 29 New Street, Wellington, Telford, TF1 1LU.

Alternatively, Bristows will also stock this kit
