All pupils from Reception through to Year 11 are required to wear school uniform. Each year group has its own requirements, but, overall, the uniform consists of:
A white blouse with school tie, school blazer and tartan skirt for the girls.
A white shirt with school tie, school blazer and grey trousers for the boys.
Games kit with school crest on.
Our supplier, Ron Flowers, based in Wolverhampton is the sole supplier of key uniform and sports kit, but parents may source shirts and other clothing from other stores. The uniform lists identify ‘essential’ uniform and ‘suggested’ which makes it clear what must be worn and what is not compulsory.
Sixth Formers don’t need to wear school uniform but they must wear smart business attire during the working day. This is a dark suit for the boys with a formal shirt and tie and smart dresses or two-piece suits with jackets for the girls, with skirt lengthy being on or below the knee. All shoes are formal, polished shoes and ‘trainer-like’ shoes are not permitted.
Boarders may wear their own clothes in the evenings and at weekends.
The final week of term will be a celebration of well-being through a host of character development activities. The week begins with the senior school sports day on Tuesday, 9 July.
On Wednesday, 10 and Thursday, 11 July, students will take part in a variety of house competitions and activities that will give them an opportunity to enhance a variety of skills such as leadership, teamwork, problem solving, creativeness and resilience through enterprise, drama and STEM activities to name but a few. During these days, students will also be off site taking part in a number of different activities that encompass our school values such as supporting community projects in the surrounding area and taking to the outdoors for some outdoor and adventurous activities. The school year is brought to a close on Friday, 12 July, with our final house competition. Students will need to use all their skills they have been developing throughout the year and during the week for this end of year extravaganza. We can’t tell you too much about the day as it will spoil the surprise!
