Our uniform list shows the items of uniform and sports kit that your child will need to ensure that they are correctly and smartly dressed at all times. Children should be in summer uniform until October half term, and then in winter uniform until the end of the spring term.

Uniform can be bought from our online shop, School Colours Direct. This can be visited here.

For those items that you purchase from elsewhere we do ask that you comply with our guidelines and school colours. Guidelines on non-school purchases are:

  • Plain grey, black and blue school socks and white PE socks must be short or long (as indicated, none of which should be training socks);
  • Boys school shorts must be mid-grey and have inseam pockets not patch;
  • Boys school trousers must be mid-grey or charcoal (as indicated) and have inseam pockets not patch.

School Colours, as our official School outfitters, have been making and supplying high quality ethical school uniforms to leading independent schools throughout the UK, as well other countries, for four generations.


  • For girls, long hair should be tied back. Hair bands and scrunches must be blue or burgundy. Girls may wear small plain ear studs. No other jewellery is allowed. Makeup and nail varnish is not allowed;
  • For boys, please keep hair off the collar and out of the eyes;
  • Watches are permitted from Year 2;
  • Shoes should be black or navy, of a sensible design and be kept polished.

The marking of all uniform, kit and equipment, shoes, swimming towels and home clothes brought in to school is essential. It is the responsibility of the parents to ensure that every item is clearly marked.

We advise that sew-on name tapes are used. We recommend using Woven Labels UK.

All kit used for activities e.g. Judo and Forest School must also be clearly named.

Hanging loops must be sewn on painting and lunch aprons and tracksuit bottoms for children in Pre-Prep.
