School Uniform

 

Christ’s School has a strict uniform policy. We believe this helps students take a pride in their appearance and promotes a positive image of our school.

Students are expected to wear the full uniform tidily at all times.

Trainers are not acceptable as school shoes. Trousers should be normal school trousers: denim or cord type material is not acceptable.

All students must wear the approved school uniform that is sold through our uniform supplier Stevensons. Details of how to buy can be found below under 'How To Order'.
