All girls in Years 7 to 11 are expected to wear uniform. Our aim is that girls should develop a sense of pride in themselves in relation to their appearance, as members of the school and community. We do ask parents to co-operate with us in the matter of sending their daughters to school in correct uniform. All items worn at school must be clearly marked with the owner’s name. It is impossible to trace mislaid property which is un-named.
SCHOOL UNIFORM SHOP OPENING HOURS
12.10 – 1.10 pm Mon – Fri (term time only)
Our uniform is available from our school uniform shop and payment can be made through ParentPay, details of which are available from the School Office.
If you are unsure of the size your daughter requires, we do have a very limited area for your daughter to try on the uniform, but it is recommended that you buy the size you feel is correct, which can be exchanged within 28 days of purchase, if necessary.
All exchanges must be returned in mint condition, unworn, including all labels attached and original packaging, within 28 days of purchase. We have the right to refuse exchanges unless returned in this condition.
