School Wear

The school uniform was chosen after consultation with parents, governors and pupils. The agreed school wear reflects the school's aims, ethos and aspirations as a place of learning. It is smart and sensible for everyday wear and presents a good image of the pupils and their school when they are on public display. The school colours are green and white and these are mirrored in pupils' sportswear. 

Uniform should be appropriate both with regard to the uniform guidance (see below) and in the judgement of Senior Staff.

Our school uniform is available from Greggs Sports on Battle Hill, Hexham.
