Uniform & PE Kit

School uniform is worn by all students and we want it to be worn with pride. The wearing of uniform in school ensures that all students are neat and business-like in appearance, which in turn encourages a positive, purposeful attitude to school and to a student’s studies. Please refer to our school uniform policy

Items of school uniform and PE Kit marked ** can be purchased from Bristows Club & School (Bridgnorth) or 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.
