The school places great importance on uniform. It emphasises our belief in the identity of the school as well as underlining the importance of being neat and tidy in all aspects of school life. The school uniform greatly simplifies the lives of the students during these critical second level years and undoubtedly saves parents large sums of money. Correct wearing of the school uniform requires the full co-operation of the students, their parents, and the school, and it is in the spirit of partnership that we emphasise our school uniform policy at the beginning of each school year
Wearing the full school uniform is compulsory on each school day and on all school outings, i.e. shirt, jumper and trousers. Students must wear full uniform for Assembly each morning. Any student not wearing full uniform must bring a note from home stating the reason. A note will be accepted for one day only after which a sanction may apply.
The school uniform for all students consists of:
- Grey Trousers
- White Polo Shirt with the school crest
- Navy Jumper with school crest
- School Jacket with Crest (compulsory for all students)
- Black Leather Shoes ( runner types are not acceptable)
The school year is 167 days and in order to maintain a good standard of uniform throughout the school year, parents/students are asked to purchase at least two polo shirts, two trousers and one jumper each year, and maintain these in a clean and presentable condition at all times. All items should be clearly labelled.
The uniform should be bought and any alterations necessary completed before school opens. Changes to the design of the uniform are not acceptable.
All students are required to have the official school jacket. This should be maintained and replaced as necessary. (Note that the school has a small supply of replacement zips.)
Students are not permitted to wear other tops or hoodies in school at any time. These will be confiscated and returned to parents only or at the end of term. School P.E. Track suits/tops must not be worn into school. Students attending matches should come to school in full uniform and change before leaving the school.
