Don't under estimate the value of our school uniform:
1. Our uniform shows that you are part of our school.
2. When you wear our uniform, wear it with pride, it means you are being respectful and demonstrating our schools ethos and mission.
3. Our uniform give students a sense of belonging and creates an identity for our school in the community.
4. Studies have shown school uniform can improve learning by reducing distraction, sharpening focus on schoolwork and making the classroom a more serious environment, allowing students to perform better academically.
5. Our uniform means students don’t have to worry about peer pressure when it comes to their clothes. When everyone is dressed the same, worrying about what you look like isn’t so important. There is no competition about being dressed in the latest trend.
Our fortnightly Smartest Pupil Award reinforces the importance of our uniform to our school. Thank you for supporting us.
