Admissions: Uniform

Updated: Mon 27 Mar 2017   Share: Share on facebookShare on TwitterShare on MySpaceShare by Email

The school takes seriously the appearance of our students on their way to and from school as this can do a great deal to promote or damage the school's public image. We believe that the wearing of a uniform may also act as a desirable constraint on the behaviour of boys in public places since they can be readily identified to the school. The school expects parents to support its policy on uniform.

Black blazer with school badge
